Tremendous. Never mind pretentious 'Prelude' - just call it "Pretty brilliant bit of rag time played at awesome speed." A super piece

wow awesome! but i have a question, what is the symbol in-between last note of measure 10 and first of measure 11 on treble clef!

Nathan Ryland's picture

That's a glissando, where you slide your hand along the keys from the first note to the last one. You can hear what it sounds like in the videoscore.

Ha, I do like it as well. Reminds me of the old player pianos. Any others you have on display?

Not a traditional piece, classical or rag. Still awesome.

Well, if I would envision a ragtime prelude, this would definitely be it!

Great piece! You definitely have your niche here on - great Jazz preludes.
