Rotlles de pianola de Mas Roger (2010)

After locating 2,014 pianola rolls in the Mas Roger de Cabacés farmhouse (Priorat), an old property of the Vidal llecha family, the whole collection was inventoried and part of it digitised. It could be confirmed that it came from s single collection compiled between 1910 and 1936 which includes originals recorded by well-known players such as Granados and Strauss. The location of the rolls in two rooms specifically dedicated to musical activities, overlooking Montsant, together with the personal tastes of a comfortable family reflect the romantic concept, typical of the bourgeois model, of enjoying life, the countryside and music.
