Red Peppers is described by Trebor Jay Tichenor in his Ragtime Rediscoveries as being a local Midwestern rag of rare sensitivity and musicianship. An opinion which leaves this editor with the heartfelt wish that Imogene Giles had found time to compose more such pieces. The two step itself has an AABBCCDDC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the B- and C-strains whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this transcription for recorder quintet, the descant somewhat unusually has a supporting role and only has the melody for the C-strain and is additionally called upon to alternate to tenor for the D-strain.
Red Peppers was published by Giles Bros., Quincy, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
