"Maple Leaf" and "Entertainer"' orchestrated by Gunther Schuller
Ragtime is a formal, almost neoclassical musical expression in which the melody is free to wander from the strong to the weak rhythm, to delay or anticipate, or to drop unpredictably. It was seriously accepted and fared far better in Europe than at home where its very name was an epithet, a scornful, belittling term with strong racial overtones. But, Brahms envisioned a ragtime project just before his death; Debussy experimented in the medium with two piano pieces, "Golliwog's Cakewalk" and "General Levine"; Stravinsky followed not too long after with his "Piano Rag Music." "Eight Movements in Ragged Time" attempts to recapture the fresh, free movement generated throughout America at the turn of the century.
