Links

 

There are numerous ragtime related sites on the Internet and all of them have a links page. I will therefore only mention the sites which have helped me the most building this site:

Three now unfortunately defunct sites must also be mentioned - the ones of Frank Himpsl, Terry Smith and Warren Trachtman.

   

A lot of the arrangements on the Virtual Orchestra page comes from Klaus Pehl's ragtime collection. He has a special interest in the historic so called Red Back Book, a collection of 15 ragtime orchestra arrangements with separate booklets for each instrument. As the arrangements on the Virtual Orchestra page have a different organization I enclose below a link to his own web page where he provides the original organization of the Red Back Book per instrument. Also provided is a link to a page (in German language) where he writes about different aspects of the history of ragtime and early jazz.
