Virtual piano

 

This section is a complement to the Piano rolls page and contains some of my favourite piano rags that I have not yet been able to find as piano rolls (in reasonable condition).

Most of these pieces have been sequenced from original music scores by me but some (marked RR below) were sequenced by Raymond Robijns. If you just want to listen to a few pieces here, choose his. They are superior in every way and couldn't have been played better by a top notch ragtime pianist.

Note: Piano roll performances - even recorded ones - were often embellished and chords were complemented afterwards for a richer sound. This haven't been done here. All tunes are performed exactly as written.

Click on the column title to change sort order: Year, Title or Composer. Click on the Play icon to listen to the music. Click again to stop. Click on the Score icon to see or download the piano score in pdf-format. Click on the Download icon to download the mp3-file (or listen to the music if the Play icon does not work for you).
