The Entertainer

Scott Joplin wrote this ragtime classic in 1902.  Some people today will remember it from the Academy Award winning movie The Sting starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman in 1973.  The 1970s was a period of renewed interest in ragtime music, with Marvin Hamlisch winning a Grammy for his soundtrack for The Sting.  The Entertainer is among the most popular of ragtime melodies and has been transcribed for all instruments and all types of ensembles.  This version simply adds a violin playing the melody along with the original piano music.
