End Pin Rag (Cello and Bass Section Feature). Composed by Richard Meyer. Orchestra. String Orchestra. String Orchestra. Grade 2. Conductor Score & Parts. 62 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.20286).
Your cellos and basses will shine in this fun, educational, and very playable section feature by Richard Meyer. A great introduction to ragtime, this charming work uses the harmonies and stylistic features made famous by Scott Joplin at the turn of the twentieth century. Particularly enjoyable is the minor-key pizzicato section, which features an amusing array of "silent movie-style" sound effects such as slide whistle, ratchet and cowbell.
