A delightful piano composition - Peacherine Rag

Posted on December 9, 2014 at 12:47am 0 Comments

I started composing because of the music in the movie "The Sting" - the ragtime of Scott Joplin. His music is not only great sounding, but a fun fit fit for the fingers - physically enjoyable to play. Here's a piece which was not in The Sting, but which is a delightful example of his work - about 3 minutes long -

I've never forgotten it. I find it meditative and hypnotic. I've been looking for it for years online and finally found it. The last few words spoken I particularly find affecting. Hope you like it.…
