Violano Virtuoso, Audio and Video

A Selection of Violano Virtuoso Music.

A Violano Virtuoso is a mechanical musical instrument comprising a 44 note piano and either one or two violins.
The music for these was originally supplied on paper rolls, much like the Wurlitzer organs.

The audio section plays a selection of music made from Wurlitzer w125 rolls filtered to simulate a Mills Violano Virtuoso.
Note: Wurlitzer 125 rolls in midi format are free and can be downloaded from the internet. These can be filtered to play on a real Mills Violano Virtuoso which has been adapted to play midi files or to play on a standard midi player.

The video section shows videos of real Violanos, many of which have been adapted to play music in midi format.
