Product description

Amazon.ca

William Bolcom is my kind of musician: a fine composer of varied music, and a terrific pop and ragtime pianist. Unlike many contemporary players, Bolcom always heeds Joplin's directive never to play ragtime fast. He captures the cakewalk rhythm of Joplin's rags, and plays the gorgeous waltz Bethena as beautifully as you'll ever hear it. This is an excellent selection of Joplin's pieces without a second-rate work in the bunch, beautifully recorded in stylistically aware performances. The intelligent annotations give you a good sense of Joplin's accomplishment and place in American music. This is probably the best single-disc Joplin collection on the market. --Leslie Gerber
