      Sunflower Slow Drag


The music in Sunflower Slow Drag is full of brightness and levity, having the light, upbeat character found in many of Joplins happiest compositions. After a brief introductory passage, the jaunty main theme appears in all its ragtime cheer, typical of Joplins works. The closing is especially reminiscent of the ending of his more famous The Entertainer and while not as well known, this cheerful four minute works deserves the same fame and popularity. Originally scored for chamber winds, optional parts have been included for larger ensembles.
