"This 2-CD set featuring a wide array of artists is true to its title in presenting a good overview of the century. The first disc features piano solos and the second disc small-orchestra arrangements, each presented chronologically. One caveat is that ragtime fans may already own several of the selections, as they are taken from existing CDs (e.g., Morath, Rifkin, Zimmerman)."
Not a bitter old queen from Canada

"Not to sound grand (...), but I rather enjoyed this compilation, bringing to life such music from our American past century. It's nice to have the variety available at ones finger tips all in on CD set. A great jumping off point to delve deeper into Ragtime. As a performing artist, I use this CD in my period work for inspiration on creative pieces that reflect the spirit of early America. Though, if you happen to be a Canadian music fan from British Columbia, you might want to try the Canadian brass ensemble instead."
A Great Collection

"I have a rather extensive ragtime collection including such artists as Max Morath, Bill Bolcom, Guido Nielsen, Eubie Blake and Virginia Eskin, to name a few. "A Century of Ragtime" enjoys a favored place in my ragtime library for its diversity of artists, both on the piano and the ensembles, and in the selection of compositions included. The inclusion of several lesser know pieces adds to enjoyment of the package. I highly recommend this collection for anyone just getting started in collecting ragtime music, as well as for any collector who simply wants to have a lot of fun listening to really good music played by really good artists."
