Blancafort "Victoria" Piano Rolls of Spain
By Adam G. Ramet

I have unearthed a little bit of info on Victoria piano rolls.  The
company was owned by Joan Blancafort.  He was the father of Manuel
Blancafort the (little known) Catalonian composer.  Manuel apparently
arranged rolls for his father's company.  Read a little about it at the
following website:-  http://www.webcom.com/musics/blancafort.html

Previous MMD contributions have correctly identified the company name
of "Blancafort" but that was the extent of previous knowledge.  Does
anyone know anymore about Manuel Blancafort?  We may yet discover much
about Victoria rolls, it seems.

Yours sincerely
