This is my favorite Scott Joplin CD, which features outstanding interpretation and playing by Joshua Rifkin. He plays Joplin in a straightforward manner, as it is written, with the right tempo and touch. I have several Joplin CDs but this one is by far my favorite. (In the other Joplin CDs I own, the pianists play pieces such as "Maple Leaf Rag" and "The Entertainer" way too fast, with unnecessary liberties and embellishments). Even though this CD is pricier, it is well worth it. In my opinion, this CD is the best one to own for Joplin's piano rags.

Possibly the original, but certainly the best performances of Joplin's music. Regretably, only half of the 1970s' tracks are on this CD, but it is still a CD to be treasured!

I agree with the other comments. The tempos are appropriate and not kitchy. The reading of "Solace" is really beautiful. A great collection of an great, overlooked American composer.
