Magnetic Rag

Scott Joplin (1867/68? -1917)

SATB Saxophone Quartet

Magnetic Rag (1914) by Scott Joplin arranged for Saxophone Quartet SATB. This was the last rag Joplin published, three years before his death in 1917. It is somewhat unique in form and in some of the musical techniques employed in the composition. The form is cyclic: that is, the opening melody is revisited at the end of the piece. Cyclic form is rare among Joplin’s rags. This piece is a product of Joplin’s “experimental” period when he attempted to fuse ragtime with elements of classical music. It doesn’t matter whether his attempts at fusing ragtime with classical music was successful – Joplin will always be remembered as the Ragtime King.
