The German Wergo record label has released a new Conlon Nancarrow album: "As Fast As Possible" (WER 6733).

"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."
