Dear Ragtime Master,
welcome to the Virtual Sheet Music Forums!

Actually this section is pretty new, it was released just 16 days ago.

Well, if you like the great Ragtime you probably checked out our Scott Joplin section, but if you have any other preferred composer or composition you'd like to discuss about here, any your thought is very welcome.

Thank you again for your kindness and interest.

Sincerely,

Default Scott Joplin "jazzified"

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has opinions about how Joplin is interpreted. I love jazz, and I think it's cool when jazz bands play arrangements of Joplin pieces. I read, however, that Joplin was disappointed...that he wanted his music to be a form of American classical music.

Any thoughts?

Yes, that's true geoneil. Scott Joplin was a real "purist" of his music. He wrote even a not very well known, but really wonderful, opera called "Treemonisha". He also was very concerning to the fact that often his music is played "too fast". Often he write on his music the wording "Not Fast" in order to avoid a such bad interpretation.

I love Scott Joplin. I really think he's the king of the ragtime.

Any further idea is very welcome!

All the best,

i also think he is the king of ragtime. and i like to practice his peices because they're fast and it gives me a chalenge.

its not the only music i play, but just my favorite, im still finishing up fur elise the famous bethoven peice everyone buys!! i like the last part (not the refrain type part, if youve heard the midi ull know) were it gets realy loud and i practicly slam the keys.

Talking Joplin

Does someone of you play the entertainer (or maple leaf rag) on the piano? It's a quite difficult piece...but awesome. Where I live it's too overplayed (the refrain) therefore kind of ruined. But it stays a wonderful piece. Joplin Rules!
