- My friend, conductor and composer Gordon Wright (based in Indian, Alaska and music director of the Arctic Chamber Symphony), has composed/arranged a five-movement "Ragtime Piano Concerto" created out of five Joplin rags ("Cleopha, Solace, Bethena, Elite Syncopations, and Maple Leaf Rag.") He recently recorded the work with Butch Thompson as the piano soloist on a CD called "At First Light. The arrangements are WONDERFUL, and tastefully and respectfully done. It's recorded with Gordon conducting the Miami Philharmonic (a non-existent pickup orchestra in South Florida). Gordon produced the CD himself under the label name "Turnagain Music."This "ragtime piano concerto" is self-published and available from him (as well as the "At First Light" CD).
