HISTORY

Scott Joplin was born near Texarkana, Texas around 1868 and died in New York City in 1917. He came from a musical family and demonstrated musical talent from a young age. Unlike many ragtime pianists, he received formal training. His mother exchanged house cleaning services for lessons given by a local piano teacher, Julius Weiss. Weiss instilled in Joplin an appreciation for European masters and musical forms.

Joplin left home in his teens and worked as an itinerant musician in the midwest, playing in various towns' "sporting districts". Popular music was undergoing a shift in styles, mid-century forms sentimental ballads in the European tradition received an infusion of energy in the form of fascinating new rhythms that, starting around 1893 began to take hold in the American consciousness. This music picked up the moniker "ragtime," possibly due to a shortening of the phrase "ragged time". The music existed for about 25 years or so, with the usual dates given as 1896 to 1917, when ragtime began to turn more into early jazz forms.

Joplin's first publications were around 1895; his first rag was "Original Rags," published in 1899. Maple Leaf Rag, which became Joplin's greatest hit and the best-selling instrumental sheet of its time, was also published in 1899 by the publisher with which Joplin is most commonly associated, John Stark.

Joplin had several notable students who went on to compose rags in their own right. Often their first published rag was a joint effort between Joplin and them, in which the student composed one or more sections (often the first two) with Joplin filling out the rag in a compatible style. Joplin would then take the rag to Stark, where it would be published under names of both teacher and student. So what has your teacher done for you lately?

Joplin continued writing rags over the next dozen or so years. "Magnetic Rag," published in 1914, is Joplin's last non-posthumously published rag. Over the years, Joplin lived in Sedalia, Missouri and Saint Louis, Missouri, eventually moving to New York City as Tin Pan Alley began to dominate music publishing.

And while Joplin is most strongly associated with ragtime, he worked in a much broader oeuvre. In addition to his marches, waltzes, and songs, he wanted to produce "serious" music. He spent a huge amount of time, money, and effort in the composition of the opera "Treemonisha" (the focus of efforts starting from around 1906-1908). Unfortunately, probably in part due to his race and in part due to difficulties overcoming the stigma of being associated with a vaguely disreputable style of music, he was never able to witness their production.

RAGTIME MUSIC

Ragtime music's defining feature is the juxtaposition of strong on-the-beat rhythms in the left hand against melodies in the right hand that place stressed notes on off beats in the right hand. The most common form of rag is the two-step, which is also a form of dance. The two-step is based on a march, 2/4 time, consisting most often of low octaves interleaved with block chords near the middle of the keyboard. This type of bass is also called a "stride" bass, and it's a challenging aspect of ragtime. Tempo-wise, Joplin rags will often be notated as "Slow March Tempo," indicative of the march heritage.

The right hand usually consists of running melody lines and arpegiatted patterns that intermix individual notes with blocked chords. Blocked chords will often land on the off beats; that is, if you consider that the left hand is usually playing four eighth notes per measure, stressed melody notes will often fall in between left hand pulses. This yields a strong forward direction to the music that 19th century listeners considered "intoxicating"

Ragtime pieces vary in construction, but the canonical format consists of four 16-bar sections, arranged in AA BB A CC DD format. There is usually a four-bar introduction and often a four-bar interlude before the C section.

Ragtime is a genre of music that straddles the 19th and the 20th centuries. It infuses some of the characteristics of light classical music with an approach to rhythm that ushers in 20th century early jazz, blues, and stride. As such, there are a few guidelines.

* Early ragtime focused on straight notes, which, as the decades advanced, began to yield to swung notes

* Early ragtime probably had an improvisation tradition, but it likely wasn't the full-scale improvisation tradition of jazz where players have sections set aside to play changes. It was likely more akin to a Baroque improvisation tradition in which repeats were ornamented. However, "cutting contests" where two pianists would pit their abilities against each other in order to win a performance job were part of parcel of being a professional player

* Of course, modern ragtime players will do what they think sounds best with the pieces anyway, with varying success.

There are a lot of inferior rags out there. Joplin is widely considered the King of Ragtime writers because he brought nuanced melodic writing, movement of internal harmonies, and a general thoughtfulness in construction. His rags benefit very much from applying classical phrasing. In general, I consider his rags are very fragile things. Played brusquely, they evoke the worst stereotypes of honkytonk playing. Careful attention to phrasing and dynamics can bring out their sublime nature.

ABOUT THE RECITAL

I've attached a proposed list of Joplin rags. Coincidentally, my teacher had already prepared a list of rags that he'd graded on rough difficulty, having made specific comments on the rags in the group marked "EASIER" and "MEDIUM". Everything else, he grouped in the "HARDER" category. So I'm stealing it shamelessly.

Difficulty levels are relative and my teacher's opinion based on elements in the scores themselves. Ragtime isn't at the level of Chopin Ballade number 4 in difficulty, but even the easier rags require at least an intermediate level of technique. I personally don't find any of them to be "easy".

That said, there are plenty of simplified versions of rags out there--usually Joplin's bigger hits. The problem is that most of the arrangements are products for sale.

If you are interested in participating but worry about the difficulty level, I have a few proposals:

* First, if you already have or don't mind buying a particular simplified Joplin rag, then by all means speak up and I can add your rag to the signup sheet. For the simplified category, however, it's still first-come, first-served (horse trading permitted). If someone has already signed up for a simplified version of a rag, consider attempting another rag. Same thing goes for folks doing full rags--if someone's taken the piece you want, consider doing another piece or engage in some horse trading.

* Second, I've trawled through the Internet and found a few simplified versions that seem to have been made freely available for download.

* Third, if a full rag just seems too difficult and too long, you could consider preparing just a subset. Many simplified versions condense rags to just their AABBA sections, but you could also perform just a single section if you thought that was what you could do.

If there's a Joplin piece missing that you absolutely want to do, we can always add it into the list--the list is just an initial subset of good pieces.

RESOURCES

Finally, the post or two after this signup sheet will be a resource guide that links to good performances of the sample rags (both piano and non-piano arrangements) as well as links to the sheets.

Joplin write some truly enchanting music. I hope you'll give him a try.

My goodness, Whizbang, what an effort you've put into this already!

Well, I'm delighted to see it started and I'll be happy to be the first to sign up!

Put me down for the Pine Apple Rag. smile

Sign me up for the Peacherine Rag. I have already started working on it. I will be doing a slightly simpler arrangement by Mary Sallee from the Simply Joplin book. It seems to be the complete song (no sections left out).

I'd like to do the Original Rags from 1899, please. I've probably played thru it a couple of times, but it looks doable, and if I learn it it'll be a great addition to my repertoire.

Thanks, Whizbang! I can hardly wait!

Oh, indeed! My problem with the list was not in what to include but in what to edit out for the first cut.

The stuff in the Easier and Medium sections are things that my teacher had specific difficulty level feedback on. Everything else he either 1) thinks belongs in the harder category or 2) isn't his cup of tea.

But I know that he plays Sugar Cane and has played Ragtime Dance. I'll put you down for Sugar Cane for now.

If you haven't played it, you'll love it! My house is often full of ragtime, to the chagrin of my partner, who's always made a huge point of grousing about it.

But then I caught him humming along with the B section of Pine Apple one day... busted!

For the ones already on the list, I already went to the trouble to link to the PDFs! Look for the link labeled "sheet" for any of the full rags in the resource post.

Original Rags is interesting in that it's Joplin's first published rag. But he was shopping Maple Leaf Rag around at the same time and the Original Rags publisher (a Texas-based publisher, I believe) passed on Maple Leaf, possibly due to concerns about Maple Leaf's difficulty.

(LOTS of people bought ragtime sheets only to find it was a much harder genre than they expected... it led to the rise of ragtime-specific piano schools [Axel Christensen]).

The OR publisher didn't publish the piece with Joplin's attribution alone. Original Rags is marked as arranged by Charles Daniels. This might be to help sell the piece--Joplin himself did that with the first piece that Joseph Lamb sold to Stark--or it could have been that Joplin's sheet needed work... but that doesn't seem likely?

I can do any of the following:

On your list:
Maple Leaf
Entertainer
Solace
Easy Winners
Palm Leaf
Fig Leaf
Gladiolus
Rose Leaf

Not on your list:
Peacherine
Elite Syncopations
Nonpareil
"New Rag"
Wall Street Rag

I love the Maple Leaf, Entertainer, and Solace, but let's see who's comfortable with what, and I'll fill in a gap somewhere. I'd hate to take the Maple Leaf (et al) if someone else really wants to play it/them. smile

Valencia, that second video is a riot laugh It beats anything in the "What's Your Biggest Distraction?" thread laugh For awhile the elephant was even in time!

I started mine tonight (because otherwise it won't be done :\ ) I played The Entertainer for my first ABF recital (#6, almost 5 years ago), and I couldn't reach the right hand octaves. No problemo this eve! Not that I know whether I can do them up to tempo, but 5 years ago I couldn't reach them. So there's been progress!

This will be so much fun -

Cathy

Hm. wj3 opted for Peacherine, and it's disappeared! Must be a bug somewhere.

No, it's there; it's just that he's doing a simpler version. Given that I assumed there were folks of various skill levels that probably wanted to do The Entertainer and Maple Leaf, I opened up duplicates--just not duplicates within full rags and within arranged rags.

Derulux is noting that there's no "full" Peacherine version. (Peacherine, as a full rag, is in the 'easier' category.) If folks have a strong preference for a rag not on the list, I'll happily add it. I just didn't want to list 44 pieces for folks who might not know the repertoire and pruned it down a bit to give folks a starting point.

Duh - thanks Whizbang. That'll teach me to get old and miss things in lists, huh.

I think it's great that there's arrangements available. Nice going.

Gotcha!

Bink's was a commission, actually. It was named after the child of the folks that commissioned it. But someone along the line got the kid's name wrong, which was Bing.

Now the poor child is a search engine.

Anne - I'm looking forward to Binks. I, silly me, did Bethena first, but Binks has been on my list for awhile - it's delightful.

Gotcha!

EDIT: Oh, and for the simplified versions I posted, -make sure- to pull a copy down right away. For the full versions, I don't think IMSLP is going anywhere soon, but you never know with someone's personal site--I do think the sites I found were legit... folks posting their own arrangements for download.

Of the links Whizbang provided, Chrysanthemum is played by ABF member cebukid smile

I really like the flute choir playing Easy Winners (it's listed to the right of the video Whizbang posted), and I love Max Morath, here with The Entertainer.
