Although Scott Joplin's musical interests were considerably broader than what could be expressed in ragtime - he composed two operas (Treemonisha is considered by many to be his masterpiece), a ballet, and two orchestral works - it as the 'King of the Ragtime Writers,' the master of freely syncopated and extraordinarily inventive piano rags, that he is best remembered today. The present disc features many favourites, including Joplin's most famous composition, the scintillating Maple Leaf Rag, The Entertainer, which became all the rage in the 1970s thats to its use in the motion picture The Sting, and the quirky Elite Syncopations.
