This young classical pianist single-handedly kicked off the Scott Joplin revival with his early '70s Nonesuch LPs that took the famed ragtime composer into the pop charts. This 17-track compilation features Rifkin's most masterful renditions of Joplin's lively rags including Maple Leaf Rag; The Entertainer; Elite Synchopations; Magnetic Rag , and more.
In fact, I felt I had to learn to play the piano after hearing this album and I was determined to learn to play Gladiolus. I have been having lessons for one year, and practising one hour each day, and am pleased to say that I can play the first half of quite a few of them!! That's at 46 and never ever previously having played a note on any instrument.
You never know this album might inspire you the same way!
Having heard his music played, on the pianola at his house in St Louis, I thought I'd give this CD a go, and see if it sounded the same.
I know it's all subjective, without having the artiste there in person, but it does give a flavour, of what this great man was all about.
