This version of Fig Leaf Rag
is contained in Consort With a Swing
. It is much easier than that of Christa Sokoll's
no doubt being at players of intermediate proficiencies or beginners. Along with Red Rose Rag
it was very much played by The Schwanewede Recorder Consort
, Blue Monday
and Blue Tuesday
as ideal introductions into Scott Joplin's world. The performance notes stress that it should be played airily, not too legato with the syncopated notes lightly stressed.
It was also played reluctantly by Quartettino
who in the main, considered in to be somewhat infra dig and should not be taken seriously.
