...So I look up Sergei Prokofiev's March from his anti-opera opera, "For the Love of Three Oranges" and YouTube has a recording from a player piano roll as played by the composer himself and not a bad one, either. Kewl!
Then I scroll down the comments to read, "wow! the sound quality is amazing for such an old recording."
Gads. One of the very bestest, neatest things about player piano music is that it is software. Unlike a tape or a vinyl disc (or a wax cylinder), it's rugged and can be copied without playback.
"Wow, those MIDI files from the '80s still sound so good!" Arrgh.
