AN INTERVIEW WITH SENOR GRANADOS ON
The Duo Art Pianola
(Senor Grunndo it an Officer of tlie Frencli Academy, n member of tlte Legion of Honor, an intimate friend of
Sponisli Reunify1 lie is the ccmpcer of tlie first thoroughly" Spanish opera ever written. The composer, too, of the first
opera produced at th? Metropolitan Opera House, Tew York which was ever sung in Spanish outside of Spain.)
GRANADOS. the distinguished Spanish composer.
sat a dar, slight, intense man listening to one of his
own piano performances reproduced on the Duo Art Pianola,
exactly as he had played it a week before. The notes were np
phng upon tlie fo'board. as if touched by unseen hands now
falling lightly as leaves, now charged with indescribable spirit and
"It was at a dramatic moment that m which I saw him first.
" That picture I can never forgtt.
"As phrase by phrase of his radiant music swept along,
Granados' face was rapt with tfondcr and deiighf. (ou he
would listen motionless; now as, if it ivcrc impossible to contain
himself his fingers would move as if they danced along the key
board. Now his head would sinl within his hands; now it would
be raised in sheer amazement of delight
"Mon Dieu, it is my portrait!' he exclaimed.
"His exquisite 'El Pclelc' ceased. 'Sciior Cranados' I com'
menced, 'would you call that a perfect reproduction of your com'
position 7 Docs it match your own original performance in every
subtlety and shade ?'
"It is my portrait it is my portrait,' he ept repeating, as if
yet in the thrall of what he had heard.
'" 'Is there even the slightest suggestion of the mechanical in this
reproduced performance7' I asfcd. 'Please be very fran'
"Nothing nothing' There could be no question of his
earnestness. 'It is all so truthful, solife'he, .so exact a replica
of my very touch that my pupils themselves m Barcelona could
detect no difference.'
"He paused, and after a momoit he said, 'Yes, it is so human,
so personal to me that, as I have list.ited to it m a darkened room,
I seemed to see myself sitting at th.: eys. I seemed to feel the
very touch of the keys in my fingertips So perfect
even do J conceive this instrument that I thinly that those who
Jmcw some pianist in Ins lifetime could almost visualize him once
again call him to very sight through the tremendous suggestion
of himself tvhich rises m rhythmic utterance from the must'croU
that unfolds his art through the Duo-Art Pianola. . . To
me it is a wonderful fairy-story come to reality.'
"But. do you not admit, Sehor, a certain prejudice by must
nans against all pianos which are not played in the accustomed
way by hand7' I ased.
"'I admit that such a prejudice existed once,' replied the great
composer thoughtfully. 'I admit even to this prejudice myself
once. But that time has gone. No prejudice can live m the
hearing of this instrument. Its expression is equal exactly to
the expression of the artist who made the record-roll As well
might one be prejudiced against his art itself!'
" 'But. as apart from his ability to reproduce the artist's rhyth
mic cliaractcristics or his touch,' I enquired, 'is its tone every
thing that could be desired from a piano?'
"'The tone of the Duo-Art Pianola,' replied the composer of
Coycscas,' 'is exactly the ton: of the piano which is played by
hand and possesses no Pianola additions. Let me even say this
So artistically admirable in every way do I conceive this instru
ment to be that I would have no hesitation in receiving it into
my own Conservatory of Mtuic m Barcelona!
"And, now, just one thing' Ins finger rose to emphasize his
words. 'Let me speal of the remarkable ideals which must have
guided the Company which could evolve such an instrument It
suggests to me the spirit of an artist with his worlr, on artist
who is never satisfied with less than perfection.
" ' The Aeolian Company must be lie that For whatever may
secure mere commercial success, nothing can secure such truly
artistic accomplishment which had not for its basis the highest
artistic ideals, as well as the courage to achieve them
" I honor them for it. And I consider they have achieved for
music art m thts Duo-Art Pianola an enduring monument whose
magnitude can scarcely be realized.'"
I have read this interview in print, and I can only say that
faithfully it reflects my viewt.
