Though upbeat tunes such as “The Entertainer” made Scott Joplin an immortal name in ragtime music, his haunting Latin tangos and melancholy waltzes are equally compelling. Arranged for violin, viola, and cello, “Solace” and “Bethena” offer a fresh perspective and let you hear the celebrated composer in an exciting new context.
