Program Notes

Combination March

Scott Joplin, composer

Gunther Schuller, arranger

Gunther Schuller’s writing, compositions, and performances as a horn player and conductor in the field of jazz are widely known. In 1972, he presented the New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble at a Festival of American Music premiering his reorchestrations of works by Scott Joplin. They were subsequently recorded by the same group, receiving a Grammy Award in 1973, and have been credited with sparking the popular ragtime revival that followed. Combination March was scored for band by Schuller from Joplin’s original work.
