Three Ragtimes - BSN/PN

Composer: Joplin, Scott

Publisher: Schott (Germany)

Edition: 41320


Three Ragtimes
for bassoon and piano
by Scott Joplin (1867-1917) - African-American Ragtime composer
1. The Entertainer
2. The Easy Winners
3. Rag-time Dance
Arranged by Wolfgang Birtel

Who would have thought that ragtime would enjoy another renaissance? More than 50 years after the death of its main representative, Scott Joplin, the film The Sting has made this once popular style well-known and fashionable again. This small selection of Joplin rags is of course not complete without “The Entertainer.” In comparison, “Easy Winners” and “Rag-Time Dance” are no less fun to play, particularly since in the latter the performer not only has to play but also stomp his foot. Excellent music providing entertainment for many occasions!
