Bethena by Scott Joplin
Arranged by David H. Bailey

This is a great ragtime addition to any library.  It is a waltz, so the square rhythm of the march-based rags  is rounded and smoothed by the waltz feeling, yet the characteristic syncopation permeates the music.  Bethena is very happy and lively in character, and provides a bright change of pace for any concert, "serious" or pops.   Enjoy it. 

Piccolo, 2 C flutes, alto & bass flute.
