Notes & Reviews:

In concert halls and recording studios throughout the world, Rex Lawson's name is synonymous with the pianola; not the brash, mechanical variety found in cowboy films and backstreet bars, but rather the original pianola, a sophisticated instrument which responds well to serious study, and which fits in front of the keyboard of any normal concert grand, playing it by means of a set of felt-covered wooden fingers. Rex has been at the forefront of pianola music for over thirty years and has given recitals throughout the world, notably the first concert performances of nearly all of Stravinsky's pianola works, including the 'Rite of Spring' at the Theatre des Champs Elysees in Paris.
