4.0 out of 5 stars Little known Joplin Classic, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Solace: Sheet (Alfred Masterwork Editions) (Paperback)
I've watched The Sting many times and although I'm familiar with a lot of Scott Joplin's music, and already own a large volume of his sheet music, there was one piece used in the film which isn't in the book I own. I assumed this was perhaps an original piece written for the film. Quite by accident the other day I found out that it is a Joplin piece and so I immediately bought this version.

The product is a nice 4 page (A4 size) booklet with a little biographical information at the front, and includes 5 sides of sheet music. Its well printed and as far as I'm aware this is the authentic, as played by Joplin version. I listened to the famous Joshua Rifkin version, comparing it with the sheet music and to my eyes and ears the two were the same.

The piece is probably in the region of grade 6 or 7 in classical terms. Its a wonderful piece of music with a haunting main theme. Highly recommended.
