Sunday musical offering

The American composer and pianist William Bolcom composed “Graceful Ghost” in 1970 in memory of his father. Many years ago my husband and I were lucky enough to hear Mr. Bolcom perform the piece at a recital that he and his wife, Joan Morris, gave at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The pianist in this performance is Barron Ryan.

  2. «It is never right to play ragtime fast.» — Scott Joplin

    Bolcom channels Joplin’s composing style; the pianist channels his playing style.
