Elite Syncopations

"Elite Syncopations" is a 1902 ragtime composition by Scott Joplin, originally published by John Stark & Son.  One of his more popular works, it is one of a handful of Joplin rags for which he recorded a piano roll.  In 1974, the Royal Ballet, under director Kenneth MacMillan, created the ballet Elite Syncopations based on tunes by Joplin and other composers of the era.

Performance Notes: 

A challenging piece full of the "syncopations" made famous by Scott Joplin.  Care should be taken to accent each of the quarter beats in bars: 4, 7, 15, 20, and 39.  Letter "D" to the end of the piece is quite challenging.  The ensemble needs to study the "road map" making sure the D.S. al Fine is followed where it jumps from the third ending (after the D.S.) mm 22 to the Trio.
