About RAGTIME: As played and recorded by Morten Gunnar Larsen

RAGTIME: As played and recorded by Morten Gunnar Larsen comprises a number of ragtime compositions I have enjoyed performing for many years. Several people, both audience members and piano students, have asked if these pieces are available as sheet music. Some of them have never been published before, such as Norsk Rag No. 1 and No. 5 (also called Olympia Rag), the lyrical and often dramatic pieces by David Roberts, and not least veteran Eubie Blake’s Randi’s Rag, a tribute to the now deceased jazz journalist Randi Hultin.

This Music Book contains:

Norsk Rag No 1
Norsk Rag No 4
Olympia Rag – Norsk Rag No 5

Randi’s Rag
Tricky Fingers
Rustle of Spring – in rag time!

Camille – a Slow Drag
For Molly Kaufmann
