Although Scott Joplin’s musical interests were considerably broader than what could be expressed in ragtime – he composed two operas (Treemonisha is considered by many to be his masterpiece), a ballet, and two orchestral works – he is best remembered today as the ‘King of the Ragtime Writers’, the master of freely syncopated and extraordinarily inventive piano rags. This recording includes the whirling, scintillating Stoptime Rag, the nostalgic Gladiolus Rag, and Joplin’s last ever work for piano, Reflection Rag. Volume One is available on Naxos 8.559114.

It is immaculately turned out playing, though we must not forget that Joplin was a pub and club pianist. The Canadian recording is to the usual immaculate quality from this stable. - David Denton, David's Review Corner, May 2007
