Better choices elsewhere
The first half of this record is alright, since it includes works by other composers, especially James Scott (tracks 3 and 9) and Joseph F. Lamb (tracks 5 and 7). The playing is a little on the fast side in places, but that's okay. However, the second side (starting with track 13) is horrible. Morath has prepared instrumental arrangements that are pure cornball. It is heavily dominated by banjo, an instrument that, whatever its charms, clashes with Scott Joplin's artistic vision. If you are curious about Scott Joplin, start with Joshua Rifkin's classic recording, and then Dick Hyman's.
