1.   Scott Joplin  -  The Entertainer

Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer" is one of the the most enduringly popular works in music. It is a rag time two step, a fashionable form around the beginning of the twentieth century. Joplin was the first classically trained black composer to become a household name in America. Ragtime was eventually succeeded by jazz.

The composer of this widely known and much-performed rag is, sadly, unknown. It contains many of the classic features of the style, including tricky syncopations and a leaping accompaniment.

7.   Scott Joplin  -  Peacherine

Composed in 1901, Peacherine has many of the characteristics of Scott Joplin's more famous rag "The Entertainer". It was the most performed piece at the St. Louis World Fair in 1904 and was also used by Ennio Morricone in the soundtrack to the movie ''The Legend of the Pianist on the Ocean."
