With a title of The Boomerang Rag
one might reasonably expect, at least with regard to the composition's form, that at its conclusion, one would have finished where one had started. Not so! Its form is ABBACCB with a 4-bar introduction whereby the ABBA- and CCB-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. It is a pretty piece which swirls raggedly and delightfully along with many nice touches. This transcription for recorder quintet is an all bass and tenor affair that nicely brings out the catchy melodies. The cover of the original sheet music is dominated by a huge red boomerang flitting above a remote rural backdrop.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
