Joplin, Scott – Maple Leaf Rag for Trombone sextet.
The well-known Maple Leaf Rag is one of Joplin’s early works, written in 1899. It has been arranged and recorded by countless artists and has come back into the mainstream after the Ragtime revival of the 1970’s.
Joplin lived and performed for a while in Sedalia, Missouri, working at the “Maple Leaf Club”, from where some believe the work got its name.
Michael McGuire’s 3 minute arrangement for six Trombones is for advanced performers. 1. Trombone part is in tenor clef, and all other parts are in bass clef.
