Pianist Vinheteiro demonstrates just how important it is to play music on period-correct instruments. Listen, and you’ll be transported to an old-timey saloon with this medley of Scott Joplin ragtime tunes, performed on a Barthol & Berlin upright piano that dates back to 1915.
Awesome Scott Joplin
Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer is the most recognizable example of ragtime music. But what if it came out in the 1600s instead of the 1900s? Vinhetiero dons his best powdered wig for this lively harpsichord version of Joplin’s upbeat tune. Be sure to check out Vin’s more faithful rendition played on a 1915 piano.
