Pianoroll recordingsi1921-27)

Nyiregyházi made a dozen pianoroll recordings for The Ampico Corp. I chose several recordings that captured his unique style and brilliant technique.

Liszt: gMazeppah in D Minor, No. 4 from the Eudes d'execution transcendante (ca. spring or summer of 1924; November 1924; 63703H)

Tchaikovsky, arranged by Percy Grainger: Concert Paraphrase on the gFlower Waltzh from The Nutcracker (ca. September 1922; January 1923; 61613H).
-----this is my favorite recording.

Brahms: Rhapsody in B Minor, Op. 79/No. 1 (1923; January 1924, 62703H)

Enrique Granados: g Quejas o la maja y el ruisenor h [laments or the maiden and the nightingale], from Goyescas (September 1925; 64953H)---In his CTV interview (1978) EN said he likes this track.
