Knock-Knees as a title seems to be somewhat of a misnomer as there is nothing knock-kneed about this composition - perhaps an insider joke the meaning of which is long lost in ragtime history. Its form is AABACC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A- B-and C-strains are written in the major keys of F, Ab and Bb respectively. The final C-strain is played an octave higher than the first iteration. With multitudes of 3- and 4-note chords throughout, all are involved in this adaptation for recorder sextet - except for the unfortunate, no bar-counting here!
Knock-Knees was published in Cadenza by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
