Scott Joplin is considered one of the founders of classical ragtime. The strict rhythmic character, the lively harmony and impulsive dynamics of this music are expressed in perfection. Of Joplin's many ragtimes, "Maple Leaf Rag" (1899) and "The Entertainer" (1902) are the best known.

Kees Vlak has effectively and colourfully orchestrated the "Maple Leaf Rag", originally composed for piano, for wind orchestra.
