Along with Rifkin's indispensable recordings of Scott Joplin's rags, this CD belongs in the collection of anyone with more than a passing interest in ragtime.
For those who may be unfamiliar with Rifkin, let me quickly mention that this is NOT honky-tonk ragtime! If you're looking for an out-of-tune piano playing "Five Foot Two," you've come to the wrong place.
These pieces are American North and South classics, played on a concert grand piano. Even those who chided Rifkin's Joplin recordings as "dull" may be pleasantly surprised by the energy and pep with which Rifkin attacks some of these pieces. Even so, his signature classical approach remains intact--he plays the pieces as written, as the composers intended. Rifkin's touch is graceful and elegant; he avoids taking these pieces too fast, allowing their rhythmic and harmonic subtelties to shine.
Just as many consider Rifkin's Joplin recordings to be the definitive interpretations, I consider the recordings on this disc to be the definitive interpretations of these pieces. I've heard countless other recordings of the Scott and Lamb pieces on this disc, but none match the evenness, feeling, or sheer quality of Rifkin's performances. The composers on this disc were several notches above most other popular composers of their day, and in this recording, it is immediately clear why.
These are beautiful pieces, tinged with a hint of melancholy. The mix of American rags and Brazilian tangos works wonderfully, the pieces complement each other very well. I pull this CD out often--it's great for studying, reading, driving, or just listening. No ragtime or even classical music enthusiast should be without this CD. Highly recommended! If you're looking at this, you're probably familiar with Joshua Rifkin's stellar Scott Joplin discs that were cut in the 70s. The James Scott rags are played impeccably, as are the Joseph Lamb pieces.
The range of interpretations from raucous Scott's "Evergreen Rag" to subdued Lamb's "Topliner" are perfect. Those who are not aware of Ernesto Nazareth can have that American Beauty Rag - Ernesto Nazareth / James Scott (4) / Joseph F.
Lamb - Rags & Tangos (CD) quickly righted by the masterful tracks that represent American Beauty Rag - Ernesto Nazareth / James Scott (4) / Joseph F. Lamb - Rags & Tangos (CD) tango work.
One final note is that even though Rifkin chooses three different composers of two different but similar musical forms, he manages to select and sequence a program that flows perfectly, making what would already be a five-star album that much better.

I like Rifkin but not this album. You've read the top international reviews. Customers who bought this item also bought.
