One Fuaré track only
A general reader | Irvine, CA | 05/16/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"From the liner notes: "The recordings ... were made by a device... which can read the paper rolls and when attached to any modern day piano, can reproduce the music from the original 'recording'." The sound, then, is the sound of the modern concert grand, with the texture and rhythm (don't know about relative volume levels) of the original rolls.
There is only one Fauré track--the Pavane, op. 50--and only three Strauss tracks. The notes are completely inadequate: the other tracks are not identified and all titles are in English only (thus Strauss is playing "On the Silent Forest Path"). Who is Scott playing music by Scott (three tracks)? Who is Laparra playing Laparra (5 tracks)? Grunfeld playing Grunfeld? Salzedo playing Salzedo?"
