Rolls I Punched By Hand
By Ben Roth

Greetings, everyone. A couple weeks ago, someone mentioned rolls they
punched by hand.  I would like to submit my hand-punched rolls list.
These are faithful to the score as much as possible.

1. Khachaturian: Dance of the Rose Maidens from Gayane Ballet
2. Kabalevsky: Sonatina in C -- all 3 movements
3. Honegger: Symphony No. 2 for Strings and Trumpet -- last movement
4. Widor: Toccata from 5th Organ Symphony
5. Prokofiev: 3rd movement from his 7th Piano Sonata (Wild!)
6. Bach: Prelude in E minor "The Cathedral" BWV 533.

None of them have been copied, though I wish I could find enough
people to make it worth while. They were all punched on my special
graph paper. They are all 88-note -- no expression. I can share
MIDI files of nos. 1, 3, and 4.
