Rialto Ripples is George Gershwin's first published instrumental and his only piano rag. It has all the hallmarks of Gershwin's piano style merging ragtime with a piano novelty number. It's fun and it's a toe-tapper. Jim Lyke's upbeat arrangement for one piano, four hands is a National Federation title. A great addition to recital and encore lists!
