“This collection of 11 rags by a variety of composers including Scott Joplin (Rag-Time Dance) is a welcome addition for string players. Again Ms. Greenblatt has arranged all the rags so everyone has a turn at the melody. Solid intermediate level playing is required to master the syncopated melodies and the 1st violin requires high position playing (3rd to 5th positions). Your string group will enjoy this collection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.”
- Dr. Michael Vidulich, President,
