It is difficult not to be won over by the rhythm and unmistakable thematic creativity of Scott Joplin's compositions. Born in 1867 or ’68 (the exact date is not known) and gifted with a natural talent, Joplin began to play as a self-taught pianist in the wealthy homes at which his mother worked as a maid. Later, he took piano lessons and learned the craft as a composer, which is evident in the beautiful balance we identify in his works. Before turning thirty, Joplin was already known in the saloons, thanks in particular to Maple Leaf Rag, a piece that marks the evolution of a genre, and that makes him known to the wide public as “The King of Ragtime.” This present set contains Joplin’s most significant compositions – thirty Ragtimes (including the rarely recorded “The School of Ragtime”) and three Waltzes. Thanks to its accurate chronological order, this recording reveals the composer’s evolution of both form and style. Some of his more or less known ragtimes (Maple Leaf Rag, Peacherine Rag, Something Doing, Swipesy, The Entertainer, Palm Leaf Rag, Eugenia, Gladiolus Rag, Wall Street Rag, Rose Leaf Rag, Fig Leaf Rag, Euphonic Sounds, Magnetic Rag, Scott Joplin's New Rag) could be labeled as true masterpieces for their quality, balance, and refinement. One might even say that Joplin is the Mozart of Jazz. The performance of polymath Alessandro Simonetto emphasizes the coloristic and rhythmic nature of Joplin’s compositions, so often undermined and mistreated. The recording was made on a Steinway D-274 owned by Simonetto, who was also the recording engineer (original at 88.2/24-bits).

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
