Joplin's Greatest Rags for Classical Guitar is transcribed by Robert Tarchara, from the original Joplin piano works. These intermediate fingerstyle arrangements include standard notation and tablature with suggested fingerings. This most popular Scott Joplin Rag, "The Entertainer" reached high acclaim in 1973 as the most recognizable theme from Paul Newman and Robert Redford's movie classic, "The Sting". This Academy Award-Winning film was solely responsible for the resurgence of ragtime piano in general, but more specifically brought renewed interest in the works of Scott Joplin. "The Maple Leaf Rag", unlike so many others, became quite popular during Joplin's lifetime, so much so that it was the first sheet of music to sell over one million copies. Both of these ragtime favorites as well as the much-adored "Peacherine" and "Weeping Willow" rags are also featured in this fabulous Santorella Publication.
