Overview

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.
