Format: Audio CD
There was a very fine boxed LP set of Dick Hyman playing Joplin in the 1970s and this appears to be a re-issue of some of those tracks, with three pieces played by James Levine also.
Hyman's set made a light and lively alternative to Rifkin's readings, back in the 1970s. it's good that some of these tracks are available again, on this CD. The piano and the recorded sound are good. Worth having.

HASH(0x9af8872c) out of 5 stars Helps with the Sheet Music 6 Aug. 2012
By Everest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sometimes, reading piano sheet music is a little hard for beginners - especially Scott Joplin ragtime. What they need is something they can listen to, so they'll learn it correctly. Since this CD contains all of Scott Joplin's most famous pieces, it's a really good choice.

I did catch 2 problems, however: Dick Hyman plays "The Entertainer" almost like a lullaby, and puts a long unnecessary pause after the intro, ruining the whole effect. Then, "Scott Joplin's New Rag" is cut off at the beginning - whoever was recording him didn't start until the piece had already begun. All the other songs seemed fine.

Also, in the list of tracks on the back of the case, I noticed that the last 3 were followed by asterisks. I looked for a footnote, but couldn't find one. It took me the longest time before I figured out that those were the pieces played by James Levine, and the others were played by Dick Hyman.

All in all, this is a great choice; besides the mentioned problems, I doubt that any other company could do much better.

If you're a Scott Joplin fan, consider buying Scott Joplin -- Complete Piano Works for the original published versions of Scott Joplin's sheet music.
HASH(0x9af887b0) out of 5 stars which is great. David J 17 Oct. 2015

Most people only know a couple of songs written by Scott Joplin, in Rag Time, but he was a prolific writer of music, having written hundreds of songs as well as an opera....time to give this man the musical respect he deserves, as well as enjoying his music, which is great.

HASH(0x9b816324) out of 5 stars Scott Joplin 24 April 2014
By scribner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have seen Joshua Riflkin in concert and one of the things he said between playing; is that Joplin complained that his music was being played too fast. When one of the reviewers here complained that it was being played too slow; that is the reason. Rifkin is a Joplin specialist. This is a great CD. I have it in cassette from years ago. The music is played in perfect tempo. I had the opportunity to visit the Scott Joplin house in St. Louis MO and the curator had some piano rolls, which he set up in a player piano, of Joplin playing his own music. He does play it slower but had a lot of improvisation in it. Joplin was an original American musical genius.

Very, very good cd of Joplin's best works. We listen to it quite often. Our granddaughter is 8 and she plays a mean piano and she loves this artist. Her favorite right now is Maple Leaf Rag.

Great album. Enjoying them all and introducing a budding pianest about a form of music he wasn't familiar with. Highly recommend.
