9 Original Pieces for Piano
|Producer No.||ED 21185|
Anyone who hears the name of Scott Joplin immediately thinks of the ragtime which is inseparably connected with this composer, particularly since the film The Sting has triggered a real renaissance of this musical style. The fact that the American rag master also wrote compositions for other genres he actually left a veritable opera is hardly known. The present volume unites the original piano marches written by Joplin: They are true marches, yet occasionally also ragtimes 'in disguise' bearing a 'March' in the title these technically not too difficult piano settings guarantee joyful moments of music-making. And they evoke the atmosphere of the North American clubs, cafés and salons around 1900.
