By May Howlett

Solo piano, c.1.50, Grade 4
The Baroqua Rag constitutes a nod at some of the technical features of Baroque composition, such as the pedal note, applied to the characteristic rhythmic patterns of the Rag, an early form of jazz. By using a well-known theme from JS Bach, arguably the greatest exponent of Baroque music, a link is formed to the concept of Bach, held by some, as a precursor of jazz techniques in his use of free ranging and inventive modulations based on chromaticism, for instance.  

Recorded by Katie Zhukov on the CD, Ragtime, Dreams and Visions, (Wirr 010) and "Celebrating May" (Wirr 058) available online
