Library plans concert and lecture about Scott Joplin on Nov. 9
Michael Dolman, Kansas City, Kansas, native and San Francisco resident, will present a concert and lecture demonstration of Scott Joplin’s piano works at 2 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Main Kansas City, Kansas, Public Library, 625 Minnesota Ave., Kansas City, Kansas. Scott Joplin was known as the king of ragtime. During his brief career, he wrote 44 original ragtime pieces, one ragtime ballet, and two operas. One of his earliest and most popular pieces, the “Maple Leaf Rag,” became ragtime’s first and most influential hit, and has been recognized as the archetypal rag. The piano works of Joplin are considered the American equivalent of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Inventions and Sinfonias” for keyboard.
