Virtual orchestra

 

Small and medium size local orchestras (10-12 instruments) were much more common in those days than today and a typical ragtime arrangement was written for flute (or piccola), clarinet, cornet, trombone, piano, drums, 1st and 2nd violin, violoncello and contra bass. Some added viola and a second clarinet and/or cornet as well.

As opposed to ragtime piano sheet music, that is readily available on the Internet, original ragtime era orchestra arrangements are hard to come by, at least for the time being. I'm very grateful to David Kerr of the New Century Ragtime Orchestra, England, Klaus Pehl of the Ragtime Society Frankfurt,Germany and Andrew Greene of the Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra, USA for making a large number of their stock arrangements available to me for publishing here.
