"American composer Conlon Nancarrow is best known for the groundbreaking compositions he wrote for player piano. Nancarrow was one of the first composers to use musical instruments as mechanical machines, making them play far beyond human performance ability. His central works in this new genre were the Studies for Player Piano, written between 1948 and 1992. Nancarrow's 'live' instrumental compositions can be classified in three groups, piano, chamber and orchestral. Each of those genres is represented on this new disc. The composer's late creative period is characterized by transcriptions of both his own works and works by other composers. Paul Usher's Nancarrow Concerto is a shining example of the ongoing creative development of Nancarrow's music."
