Widely known as the “King of Ragtime,” Scott Joplin left an indelible mark on the history of American music. During his brief career, the prolific composer and pianist wrote some of the world’s most recognized melodies and also some lesser-known gems for the ballet and an even a ragtime opera – much of which was composed during the decade he lived in New York City.

Revisit WQXR’s 2018 commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Joplin’s birth and his time in New York with our special encore video stream. Hosted by pianist Jade Simmons.

Featuring: pianist Dave Burrell, pianist Roy Eaton, author Tyehimba Jess, soprano Laquita Mitchell, multi-instrumentalist Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, pianist Joshua Rifkin.

Watch a video stream on this page at 4pm ET.
