Joplin says the tempo of this rag is that of a "Slow March."
Joplin: Heliotrope Bouquet
I did not know this one, a nice piece with some unusual twists and turns. You play it beautifully, very funny how you do these little 2-hand arpeggios (one or two could be a little more precise).
Very enjoyable !
This one is up !
I love your stylistic contrast between A and B...the grace "scaler" is p;layed nicely too...this piece always makes me think of "old timey radio", and you portray it very nicely with a swung B section...I'm curious as to what type of piano you're using.
Gorgeous interpretation. It's funny...at my school, I'm the only one who plays Joplin, and I'm trying to put together a Joplin Rag show for the pianists, by the pianists...no one really knows anything other than the Entertainer and Maple Leaf...I'm trying to fix this. It's really awesome to find someone who loves to play Joplin as well. Keep up the good work, and post more as soon as you record 'em
