Peter the Squeezer Complete Piano Works of Scott Joplin (32) RE: Complete Piano Works of Scott Joplin 25 Apr 17

Henryp mentioned Joplin's health problems late in his life.

On his death certificate, the primary cause of death is given as dementia, and the contributory cause as syphilis.

When playing some of his later works (New Rag, Magnetic Rag), the frustration - even anger comes through, in much the same way as it does when playing Beethoven's later works.
