Early Tangos to New Ragtime Contents.
David Thomas Roberts, one of the finest ragtime composers since the 1980s, pays tribute to the most famous ragtime composer of all, Scott Joplin. He performs 15 of Joplin's best rags in straightforward fashion without improvisation. Roberts certainly feels the music although his interpretations are conventional and the music is programmed somewhat randomly, without any attempt to trace Joplin's development chronologically. Ragtime fans will enjoy these versions of Joplin pieces even if the overall results are a bit predictable.
David Thomas Roberts. Biography by Scott Yanow. One of the top ragtime composers of the post-1970 period, David Thomas Roberts' best rags approach the level of a Scott Joplin piece; among his best-known works are "Roberto Clemente," "Pinelands Memoir,. ead Full Biography. Early Tangos to New Ragtime.
Early ragtime is also featured. Scott Joplin, undoubtedly an influence on all of today's composers, gives us in The Nonpareil a stately grounding in our classic ragtime roots. The Jackson/Morton ultra-fast Naked Dance is essentially a relentless "theme and variations", but without the nude gyrations to fuel the frenzy, it becomes a bit monotonous. For Molly Kaufmann, one of his most voluptuous works, blends 19th century Romanticism with 20th century new ragtime. The Queen of North Missouri is Roberts through and through, another example of his romanticism at which he excels. And with Memories of A Missouri Confederate we have a serious challenge to the status of his beloved 1980 composition, Through The Bottomlands. It may well emerge as his all-time best work.
David Thomas Roberts - Composer, Poet, Visual Artist. Roberto Clemente David Thomas Roberts (1979). Roberto Clemente, the legendary right fielder of the Pittsburgh Pirates, was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico in 1934 and died on New Year's Eve, 1972 off the coast of his native island in a plane that never reached the Nicaraguan earthquake victims to whom it was carrying supplies. Although familiar with Clemente during his career, I was no more mindful of him than of some other outstanding ballplayers. It was the film about him shown during the 1979 World Series that transformed my image of Clemente into a myth to be recalled with affection
