“Vintage Piano Masters: An Evening of Ragtime & Stride”
Martin Spitznagel will perform the music of Scott Joplin, George Gershwin, & more! Ragtime music--characterized by a syncopated melodic line and regularly accented accompaniment--evolved by black American musicians in the 1890s and was played especially on the piano.
Whether performing the masterworks of Scott Joplin or the score to Star Wars, Martin Spitznagel’s electric performances have left audiences across the world enthralled with America’s first popular music, ragtime.
