“Bethena” was composed by Scott Joplin in 1905
Arranged by David H. Bailey
Includes score and parts
Subtitled “A Concert Waltz”, 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.
Piccolo, 2 C flutes, alto & bass flute.
