Program note

cartoon of Joplin destroying pianoScott Joplin (c. 1867/68 – 1917) was an African-American composer and pianist. Although he did not invent ragtime, Joplin’s name has become synonymous with the syncopated march style. Here are three of his most famous piano pieces, the gentle waltz Bethena and two rags, including the soulful middle section of Solace, arranged as a medley for flute, violin and cello.

Songs include:

  • Bethena: A Concert Waltz (1905)
  • Solace: A Mexican Serenade (1909)
  • Pine Apple Rag (1908)

David Evan Thomas has been honored with two McKnight Foundation Artist Fellowships, an Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and commissions from the Minnesota Orchestra and Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Born in Rochester, New York in 1958, Thomas studied at Northwestern University, Eastman School of Music, and with Dominick Argento at the University of Minnesota. His music is published by ECS, MorningStar, Augsburg Fortress and several other publishers. Thomas lives in Minneapolis.
