Good, But Not the Best

"First, let me say that Max Morath is an excellent piano player and interpreter of Joplin, even though I personally prefer Joshua Rifkin. He plays well on this CD. However, I was disappointed that only 6 of the 14 tracks are Joplin compositions. The others are mostly by contemporaries of Joplin, and even though they are not bad, they are nowhere near the quality of Joplin's work. Nevertheless, this is a fine CD to own. If you are looking for a more comprehensive collection of Scott Joplin's piano rags or a more serious interpretation of them, I suggest "Scott Joplin Piano Rags" played by Joshua Rifkin and available on Amazon."
