My transcriptions of Joplin Rags were published as Scott Joplin Ragtime Classics for Violin and Piano, E.B. Marks Music, 1974. All other transcriptions exist in mss only, and were collaborations with Robert Dennis. Original solo piano versions of all Ragtimes on this CD may be found in various Dover Publications editions (Classic Piano Rags, 1973; Ragtime Rarities, 1975); The Complete Works of Joplin, New York Public Library, 1982; Rudi Blesh and Harriet Janis, They All Played Ragtime, Random House, Inc., 1950; Zez Confrey Piano Solos, Ragtime, Novelty, and Jazz, Columbia Pictures Publications, 1984.

Niccolò Paganini: (1782-1840) 24 CAPRICES (1805)

Sources: photocopy of the original manuscript, from the archives of G. Ricordi & Co., Milan; photocopy of the first edition, from the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

All recordings were made at the Vanguard Studios at 208 West 23rd Street, NYC. The Ragtime recordings were made during 1975. They were engineered by John Kilgore and originally released as “Classic Rags and other novelties” Vanguard SRV 350 SD. The Paganini recordings were made during 1969. They were originally released as: “Niccolò Paganini: The 24 Caprices” Vanguard VCS 10093/4. My thanks to Greg Barbero and Artemis Classics for making these, and the Bach Sonatas and Partitas, available.

In 2005, the recordings were remixed and re-mastered (under the supervision of Paul Zukofsky) by Paul Zinman at SoundByte Productions, Inc., NYC.
