In this video I talk about the tempo controversy with regard to current performances of Scott Joplin's piano music and how the piano rolls he left behind help solve this controversy. S U B S C R I B E to my channel here: https://bit.ly/2Cl0ta2
I also briefly discus Joplin's life and influences with regard to his compositional style. At the end of the video I perform the "Magnetic Rag,” using the same arrangement found on the 1916 player piano roll.
*** INFO CORRECTION! I state in the video that "Magnetic Rag was the last rag that Joplin composed in his lifetime. What I meant to say was that Magnetic Rag was the last PUBLISHED rag that composed in his lifetime. "Reflections rag" is actually the last rag that he composed for piano in 1917.
