Larry Sitsky Piano Roll Catalog Collection
The noted Australian composer and pianist, Larry Sitsky, is also the author of The Classical Reproducing Piano Roll: A Catalogue Index. This comprehensive rollography represents years of work documenting all known reproducing piano rolls of classical music ever issued. In compiling this listing, he acquired photocopies of rare piano roll catalogs consisting of about 250 volumes. In addition, he collected another 80 volumes of original catalogs. The collection is an invaluable bibliographic resource for anyone researching the publishing of piano rolls.
Over his lifetime, Denis Condon (1933-2012) amassed a collection of over 7500 piano rolls and ten instruments. The collection contains rolls of important composers of the period, all playing their own works.
