This is Scott Joplin's famous ragtime serenade which was featured in the film The Sting. The melodies are haunting and a bit melancholy. The tango rhythm in the left hand is overlaid by the right hand's ragtime syncopation, often in complex rhythms, and in very slow march time. The right hand is required to play filled-out octave chords in some sections, and the left hand sometimes covers a wide range in stride styling. Keys of C Major and F Major.

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.
