The Entertainer

Ragtime Two-Step
Composer: Scott Joplin
Code: RMD1194
Arranger: David Heyes

The Entertainer is one of Scott Joplin’s most popular ragtime works and is a fun, lively and energetic piece which would be ideal as an encore for the adventurous intermediate double bass quartet. There are effective musical and technical challenges for each player, but nothing too taxing, and it has been popular with players and audiences alike.

“The parts are well written and the main tunes are nicely distributed throughout the quartet. David Heyes has done an admirable job on this arrangement of a popular crowd pleaser, especially as the tune is not ideally suited to the double bass.” (Bass News)
