Here's a Raggy piece I wrote about 10 years ago originally for accordion (Leprechaun Dance) and eventually became a piano solo called 'The Magic Lantern Rag' before finally being called 'The Silent Movie Rag'.This frenetic piece is a joy to play and reminds me of the silent movie days (not that I was there). The speed is really at the discretion of the performer.The strong percussive style highlighted in the middle section features in a number of my ragtime tunes (not sure why though).I have really loved Ragtime ever since I first heard my Uncle Frank rattle off the 'Maple Leaf Rag' before I could hardly reach a piano keyboard.
