Piano Accompaniment, String Orchestra - Intermediate
Composed by Scott Joplin (1868-1917). Arranged by Bob Delfausse. Ragtime, Recital, Americana. Score, Set of Parts. 22 pages. Published by Robert Delfausse (S0.139843).

Item Number: S0.139843

In this arrangement of Joplin's rag for string orchestra I added some connecting harmonies to give the orchestra a more convincing sound.  I also added dynamics in each of the strains, since Joplin put very few dynamics in his original  piano rag.
As in all of my string orchestra arrangements, there is a piano part.  It is optional, but has a very supportive role.  The duration of the piece (5 minutes, 3 seconds) can be reduced by eliminating any or all of the repeats.  The arrangement is suitable for groups of intermediate level and above.  .
