Ragtime Waltzes

Featuring Springtime of Love Valse (1919) by James Scott and other waltzes from the ragtime era

 

By Ted Tjaden

(originally published June 2006 and updated periodically)

 

The popularity of the waltz as a ballroom dance form reached its heyday in Europe during the mid 1800's with the waltzes of Strauss. This popularity of the waltz no doubt influenced ragtime composers in North America to dabble in this genre. During the ragtime era, publishers also likely realized that there was a good market, mainly among the parlour playing pianists (primarily women), for relatively easy-to-play compositions that evoked ragtime-era melodies. For some, the concept of "ragtime waltzes" is a misnomer and is instead better expressed by the concept of "syncopated waltzes" or "ragtime-era waltzes" (although for the sake of simplicity, I will use the phrase "ragtime waltzes"). Not much attention has been given to waltzes in the ragtime literature, so I thought I would provide some basic information on ragtime waltzes on this page below on the following topics, including links to over 280 (free) pieces of ragtime waltz sheet music:

1)  Introduction to Ragtime Waltzes
2)  Sheet Music for Ragtime Waltzes
3)  Commercial Recordings of Ragtime Waltzes

 

1)  Introduction to Ragtime Waltzes     [top]

Ragtime piano music ordinarily evokes the idea of rhythmic music with a syncopated beat and "intoxicating effect." Because most so-called ragtime "waltzes" lack this driving beat (due to the structure of the 3/4 waltz time), most ragtime waltzes never gained the popularity of traditional ragtime marches and two-steps. Describing ragtime waltzes as a "minor genre," Hasse (1985:4) supports this argument in these terms:

     . . . [W]altzes are in 3/4 meter, while most rags are written in 2/4. Because of the metrical differences, the piano rag's forward propulsion is noticeably lacking in the waltzes. Consequently, ragtime waltzes never became widely popular.

Despite the relative lack of general popularity of ragtime waltzes, a number of ragtime waltzes have become fairly wide known or at least often mentioned in the ragtime literature and played and recorded by ragtime performers. Some of the better known ragtime waltzes include Harry Guy's Echoes from the Snowball Club: Rag Time Waltz (below), Charles Johnson's Belle of Havana Waltzes (below), Scott Joplin's ragtime waltzes, including Bethena (below) and Pleasant Moments (below), the waltzes of James Scott (below), and Fred Stone's Silks and Rags Waltzes (below).

Many composers of traditional rags also dabbled in the waltz genre, including Thomas Allen (below), Theron Bennett (below), Charlotte Blake (below),  Eubie Blake (below), Axel Christensen (below), Edward Claypoole (below), George Cobb (below),  Zez Confrey (below), Joseph Daly (below), Charles Daniels (below), Willie Eckstein (below), James Reese Europe (below), James Glionna (below), Louise Gustin (below), Harry Guy (below), Marcella Henry (below), Charles Hoffman (below), Abe Holzmann (below), Lora Hudson (below), Charles Hunter (below), Harry Jentes (below), Charles Johnson (below), Clarence Jones (below), Scott Joplin (below), Edwin Kendall (below), Henri Klickmann (below), Sadie Koninsky (below), WH Krell (below), Jean-Baptiste Lafrenière (below), Joseph Lamb (below), Bodewalt Lampe (below), Julius Lenzberg (below), Harry Lincoln (below), Henry Lodge (below), Matilee Loeb-Evans (below), FrankLosey (below), Marie Louka (below), Albert Marzian (below), Louis Mentel (below), Will Morrison (below), Abe Olman (below), WC Powell (below), James Scott (below), JR Shannon (below), EJ Stark (below), Nellie Stokes (below), Fred Stone (below), Charley Straight (below), Blanche Tice (below), Egbert Van Alstyne (below), Charles Wellinger (below), and JS Zamecnik (below).

Axel Christensen gives some attention to ragtime waltzes in his various instruction manuals. At pages 28 and 29 of Christensen's Rag-Time Instruction Book For Piano (circa 1909) (available here), for example, the author describes how to "rag" a waltz in these terms:

To convert a waltz into waltz ragtime (see Example II) we follow exactly the same rules as usual, except that we omit the last two counts of the ragtime movements [note: for more on what he means by "ragtime movements," see here]. This gives us only 6 beats to every movement, instead of eight. Count number 1 should be accented quite strong, while counts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are played with the usual firm and uniform touch.

In ragging waltz time, the bass is played just as written that is, three bass notes to each measure on counts 1, 3, 5. Accent count 1.

Christensen then provides the following score (Example II) to demonstrate the ragtime waltz pattern:

Example of ragtime waltz pattern from Axel
                        Christensen's 1906 teaching manual

Of the over 280 waltzes in the table below from the ragtime era, only a handful are likely "ragtime waltzes" in the sense defined by Christensen where there is a syncopated right hand melody using one of the standard ragtime syncopated patterns. Although I have not analyzed all of the waltzes in the table below, a number of them likely do contain this sort of syncopated melody see, for example:

  • Christensen, Axel. Start and Garter Waltz. Chicago: Christensen School, 1910 (below)
  • Gustin, Louise. Neome Waltzes. Detroit: Whitney Warner Publishing Co, nd (below)
  • Guy, Harry. Echoes from the Snowball Club: Ragtime Waltz. Detroit: Willard Bryant, 1898 (below)
  • Henry, Marcella. The Covent Garden: Rag-Time Waltz. Chicago: Christensen School of Popular Music, 1917 (below)
  • Henry, Marcella. Glittering Stars: Rag-Time Waltz. NP: Marcella Henry, 1916 (below)
  • Johnson, Charles. Tobasco: Rag-Time Waltz. New York: Jerome H Remick, 1909 (below)
  • Joplin, Scott. Bethena: A Concert Waltz. St Louis: Bahnsen Music Co Ltd, 1905 (below)
  • Joplin, Scott. Pleasant Moments: Ragtime Waltz. New York: Seminary Music Co, 1909 (below)
  • Meyer, George. Wiggle-Wag Rag-Time Waltz. New York: Geo W Meyer Music Co, 1913 (below)
  • Morrison, Will. Will O The Wisp: Syncopated Waltzes. Indianapolis: Warner C Williams, 1912 (below)
  • Russel, James. River Shannon: Syncopated Waltz. New York: M Witmark & Sons, 1922 (below)
  • Schuster, Ernest. Eileen: Waltz. Indianapolis: Warner C Williams, 1909 (below)
  • Schuster, Ernest. Floreine Syncopated Waltz. Indianapolis: Warner C Williams, 1909 (below)
  • Stone, Fred. Silk and Rags: Waltzes. Detroit: Whitney Warner Pub Co, 1901 (below)
  • Zamecnik, JS. Mandy's Ragtime Waltz. Cleveland: Sam Fox, 1912 (below)

Although some of the waltzes below border on being cliché Victorian parlour pieces, I have always enjoyed playing and listening to ragtime waltzes. I find them very evocative of a bygone era and fun to play.

 

2)  Sheet Music for Ragtime Waltzes    [top]

Set out in the table below are links to (free) sheet covers and sheet music for over 280 ragtime and ragtime-era waltzes. I have been somewhat arbitrary in the compositions I have included (there were a lot more waltzes written in the ragtime era than those listed below). Compositions are included in the list below based on one or more of the following criteria: (i) they are waltzes by known ragtime composers or major ragtime publishers; (ii) they are ragtime waltzes or syncopated waltzes; (iii) or they are from the ragtime era and are otherwise interesting or unusual. I have generally avoided including waltz songs (i.e., ragtime era waltzes with lyrics), although the list of sheet music below includes some waltz songs where the composer is well known for other ragtime compositions. Set out below the table is a list of additional ragtime waltzes that I have yet been unable to locate, including some ragtime waltzes from ragtime revival composers.

3)  Commercial Recordings of Ragtime Waltzes  [top]

To my knowledge, there is no commercially available recordings that contain only ragtime waltzes. As such, those wanting to listen to ragtime waltzes must look for ragtime recordings with individual ragtime waltzes included on them or seek out the following "complete works" of each of Scott Joplin, James Scott and Joseph Lamb:

  • John Arpin, Complete Piano Works of Scott Joplin (InterSound Records, 1997) [Amazon.ca entry]
  • Richard Zimmerman, Complete Works of Scott Joplin (Delta, 1993) [Amazon.com entry]
  • Guido Nielsen, Scott Joplin: The Complete Rags, Marches, Waltzes & Songs (Basta Records, 2004) [Amazon.com entry]
  • Guido Nielsen, James Scott: The Complete Works (1903-1922) (Basta Records, 2001) [Amazon.com entry]
  • Guido Nielson, Complete Stark Rags of Joseph F. Lamb (Basta Records) [Amazon.com entry]

In addition, a number of ragtime enthusiasts have made free MIDI recordings of ragtime music available, including MIDI recordings of ragtime waltzes, some of which include:
