Smash Up Rag is a regular humdinger of a rag apparently composed to celebrate that ancient art of piano destruction - perhaps a worthy companion of Etilmon J. Stark's Brain-Storm Rag (1907)! Its form is AABBAABA with a 8-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude preceding the penultimate A-strain whereby the AB- and C-strains are written the major keys of C and F respectively. The melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor voices in this adaptation for recorder sextet. A fitting conclusion to any programme!
Smash Up Rag was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
