The Pianola Journal is published annually by the Pianola Institute. The journal provides unique coverage of an important area of musicology. Since the player piano first appeared at the end of the nineteenth century, a wide range of composers and musicians has written for the instrument and been fascinated by its possibilities. The Pianola Journal provides a platform for scholars and experts to explore the instrument's major contribution to twentieth century music.
Contributors have included Charles Amirkhanian, Malcolm Binns, Hugo Cole, John Farmer, Trevor Fenemore-Jones, Drue Fergison, Denis Hall, Roy Howat, Richard Howe, Rex Lawson, Mark Reinhart, Douglas Riva, Lionel Salter, Nigel Simeone and Paul Usher. The contents of each issue, together with excerpts from many articles, may be found on the individual pages listed on the left.
