Pictures of
Scott Joplin

American composer and pianist
(c. 1867 - 1917)



Scott Joplin, known popularly as the "King of Ragtime". He wrote 44 ragtime pieces, one ragtime ballet and two operas.

His "Maple Leaf Rag" (1899) was was perhaps the most influential rag ever written. Other piano music by Joplin included the following rags: "The Easy Winners", "Elite Syncopations", "The Entertainer". "The Cascades", "Leola", "Gladiolus Rag", "Search-Light Rag", Fig Leaf Rag", "Sugar Cane", "Euphonic Sounds", "Paragon Rag", "Wall Street Rag", and "Magnetic Rag".

He also composed "Bethena, waltz for piano" and "Solace, mexican serenade for piano".

Sadly, his two operas, "A Guest of Honor" and "Treemonisha", were not well received in his lifetime.
