    This freshly engraved reprint of the original edition is a joy to play and to hear. Based on a simple folk melody, Percy Grainger constructed this elaborate masterpiece drawing from the ragtime traditions of the day. The work is a powerhouse with "ffff" dynamics and notations to the performer to...

    use the fist upon certain notes. It is a difficult piece to play. It demands a reasonably rapid tempo and features a stride-style base with tenths and chords alternating in the left hand, and plenty of five-note cords for both left hand and right. If you're up to the challenge, your audience will say "wow."
