Product Description

An orchestrion is a self-playing pipe organ that imitates the sounds of orchestral instruments. The Frick Welte Style No. 6 concert orchestrion was purchased in 1892 at the recommendation of Mr. Frick’s business partner, Andrew Carnegie. It is one of four still in existence and its original pneumatic mechanism was restored in 1991 by Durward R. Center of Baltimore. The music on this recording comes from rolls that are played for visitors to the Frick home on the grounds of the Frick Art & Historical Center.
