A disc entirely devoted to the legend of ragtime and its birth; includes the first ever published ragtime signed by Turpin, the most famous rags by Joplin and Scott, the one of Gershwin and the development towards jazz by Beiderbecke. The pianist we present is one of the leading experts in this field, the Italian Marco Fumo, who for over thirty years has dedicated himself to researching the interpretation of Afro-American music and ragtime in particular. The recording was made on a 1952 Bluethner grand piano and captured by Neumann mics (Tube M 147 + TLM 103). The result is something fascinating!

I was impressed by the recording, which captures the piano’s timbres very well indeed. [...] I enjoyed this collection a great deal. The playing is assured, the recording is excellent and the Beiderbecke pieces actually work rather well in this context. —Dan Morgan Music-web International (01/08/2014)
