Russian Rag was originally introduced on the American stage by Mlle. Rhea, the charming dancer shown on the cover original sheet music. It was a million seller which encouraged the publisher to persuade Cobb to write a sequel which he duly did its title being New Russian Rag (1923). It has a sonata form of AABBACCA with a 4-bar introduction, the sonata theme boasting the famous prelude. A performer's delight, the long runs between the voices being a special delectation. Precise co-ordination between the treble and 1st tenor is an absolute must, not a piece for the faint-hearted!
Russian Rag was published by Will Rossiter, Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 84 crotchets/min. is suggested.
