Scott Joplin: “The Entertainer” (in cut time/alla breve) – clarinet trio
I have arranged this popular tune into cut time, (alla breve), from the original 2/4.
Arranged clarinet trio
It is one of the classics of ragtime, it returned to international prominence as part of the ragtime revival in the 1970s, when it was used as the theme music for the 1973 Oscar-winning film The Sting.
Composer and pianist Marvin Hamlisch’s adaptation reached #3 on the Billboard pop chart and spent a week at #1 on the easy listening chartin 1974.
The Sting was set in the 1930s, a full generation after the end of ragtime’s mainstream popularity, thus giving the inaccurate impression that ragtime music was popular at that time.
