2 Augustan Club Waltz Augustan Club Waltz

The first time I heard this piece, I was completely taken away. I have listened to it many times and have played it many times more, but still cannot describe my love for this piece. There is something about it that reaches out and grabs my heart and doesn't let go. It is truly a magical piece. - FrankerZ

3 Maple Leaf Rag Maple Leaf Rag

I'd be a fool not to include this piece of this list. The upbeat-ness and rapidity of this song make it amazing. The very "jumpy" feeling the song gives while still keeping it smooth is unbeatable. - FrankerZ

4 Kismet Rag Kismet Rag

Definitely an underplayed song to say the least. Like all Scott Joplin pieces it has a steady yet powerful beat which creates an excellent atmosphere for the even better melody. - FrankerZ

5 Binks Waltz Binks Waltz

Scott Joplin was not known for his waltzes but they are truly amazing! Once you listen to this piece you'll be hooked. This song is insane how it makes you calm, yet exited at the same time. Sit back, relax and listen to Joplin at his best. - FrankerZ
