This is a much loved, by me, folio of four ragtimes namely, the world-famous The Entertainer
, New Rag
, Ragtime Dance
and Fig Leaf Rag
. Each one is better than the last and each has been at one time my favourite.
I first played The Entertainer
with Frau Suhrlie and The Vegesack Double Quartet
way back in the early eighties. The others much later with Blue Monday
and Blue Tuesday just a few years back. I have fond memories of playing these delightful pieces in Peter Krügers Gallery, Zeichnung and Malerie, Vegesack.
