  • August 17, 2009 Great edition but too many page turns!

    This is a great edition of the complete Joplin piano works, including The School of Ragtime. In typical Schirmer fashion, the paper and type are fine. Previous reviewers have written about their difficulty in keeping the book flat. Kinko's cut the spine off mine and ring bound it with...

    plastic covers. Problem solved. My only complaint is all the page turns! Most of the rags have 2 page turns. I don't think that the editors would have sacrificed readability by putting more systems on a page. The editors of managed to put each of their Joplin selections on 4 pages with 1 page turn. Minor point, but there's not much room in Joplin to drop notes to make the page turn.

    This is serious American music. This music is fun to play....once you've got the notes in your fingers. The more advanced your octave technique the better. After all that, it's your body which plays the music. There's hardly a European note in the whole book.
