Legendary Masters of the Piano


This is a three-LP set, first released in 1963, from Book-of-the-Month club, via my mom.  Its origin is this:

Various composers and famous performers played compositions  on a Welte reproducing piano, which preserved those performances down to the keystrokes and timing.
