Rialto Ripples Rag



 Genre: Ragtime

Get Flash to see this player.

Rialto Ripples Rag was composed by George Gershwin. It was made into a piano roll
in 1916, then published in 1917 the same year
the first jazz recording was made and issued by the
Original Dixieland Jazz Band. In those days Ragtime was performed
by various ensembles of size and instrumentation, not necessarily
solo piano or concert band. Here I use the instrumentation of strings,
woodwinds, banjo and percussion.

One of my favorite Gershwin pieces. I have a recording of it on piano. Your orchestration is interesting. Is this the piano piece orchestrated by yourself, or is this a jazz arrangement by Gershwin (or someone else)? Just curious.

I love your 'period pieces' that highlight the more 'highbrow' American musicians and composers.

Full of humor too. One of the most original creations in my music library .. from now on!

I recognize the piece.
But you made it sound a bit more loose and modern. Thanks.

This is
such a great listen. Nice take on a familiar piece. Almost a concert performance style with a tighter structure than honkytonk ragtime. (I don't know how to explain with my limited musical vocabulary,.... maybe, more restrained?) Thank you.
