BDDS’s 29th season, “Riches to Rags,” features ragtime and the great New England Ragtime Ensemble (NERE) in its final festival weekend. Formed by Gunther Schuller in the early 1970s and reconstituted recently by one of its original members, Stephanie Jutt, the ensemble is the preeminent ragtime chamber orchestra. In “Buried Treasure,” the focus is on lesser-known composers of ragtime, like Joseph Lamb, Louis Chauvin, and James Scott, in addition to ragtime “spin-offs’‘ like Zez Confrey and modern ragtime composers like George Gershwin and Gunther Schuller. Jeffrey Sykes will play Erwin Schulhoff’s Rag-music, and John West and Jeffrey Sykes will collaborate on Kattenburg’s “Tapdance” for piano four-hands—a rag written to accompany a tap dancer!
George Gershwin: Lullaby for String Quartet
Erwin Schulhoff: Rag-music for solo piano, op.41
Dick Kattenburg: Tap Dance for piano four-hands
Abundant and various rags by Scott Joplin, James Scott, Tom Turpin, Louis Chauvin, Artie Matthews, Joseph Lamb, Gunther Schuller, Duke Ellington, Claude Debussy, Kenneth Laufer, and Robert Carriker
