Three Ragtimes for Viola and Piano; Scott Joplin, arr. Wolfgang Birtel
Scott Joplin (c.1868-1917) was the most famous and renowned composer of ragtime in history. His stellar debut at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair kickstarted the ragtime craze in America. He was classically trained and sought in his numerous compositions to elevate the highly rhythmic and colorful form with counterpoint, classical structures, and artful expression. Historian Bill Ryerson wrote, ''Joplin did for the rag what Chopin did for the mazurka.''
These new arrangements of three Joplin favorites for viola and piano by Wolfgang Birtel are ideal for intermediate violists.
