Scott Joplin is “The King of Ragtime” and wrote over 100 pieces of Ragtime, one ragtime ballet, and two operas. Joplin’s ‘Maple Leaf Rag’ became ragtime's first and most influential hit. Joplin and his fellow ragtime composers rejuvenated American popular music, fostering an appreciation for African-American music among European-Americans by creating exhilarating and liberating dance tunes. "Its syncopation and rhythmic drive gave it a vitality and freshness attractive to young urban audiences indifferent to Victorian proprieties ... Joplin's ragtime expressed the intensity and energy of a modern urban America.” This edition also contains a brief biography of the composer.
