Billy Mayerl and His Claviers entertain us with music from the past, present and future.
Titles read: "Another famous Variety and Radio Entertainer - BILLY MAYERL AND HIS CLAVIERS".
London, probably Pathe Studio.
Billy Mayerl (with teeth like Terry-Thomas) introduces his "new multi-tone piano orchestra".
A man and two women sitting at upright pianos (sounding like clavichords) play a minuet (Boccherini?) as a glimpse of the music of the past. As Billy announces "And now, modern times!", they all play 'Bunch of Roses' (?), with Billy joining in this time on a grand piano - it sounds like a rumba (?). For a glimpse of the future they play 'Bats in the Belfry' - a fast, number, bordering on boogie-woogie. Billy really goes for it, playing two pianos at once and spinning round (once) on his stool!
