Hupfeld rolls
By Mike Walter

I need an answer to a question concerning the different varieties of Hupfeld rolls which were produced early in this century. The question is:

Is there any difference in the arrangements of pieces which appeared on the various formats of Hupfeld rolls? To explain this question further by example... If Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodie #2, played by Alfred Cortot, were released as a DEA, Duophonola, Triphonola, and Animatic roll, would there be any difference in the arrangement of the roll, or would they all be the same arrangement, except for expression coding? This question has come to light as the result of some scholarly research, and is a bit of a puzzle. If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated.:) Thanks a lot
