STEVE LAW piano

Pianist-composer Steve Law pays tribute to the King of Ragtime piano Scott Joplin by performing some of  greatest and best loved works. This is not just music full of catchy tunes and jazzy toe tapping rhythms, but also of great warmth, charm and melancholy. Joplin elevated ragtime from honk-tonk piano to a truly original American art form which influenced much of the early jazz age and popular music that was to follow.

Hearing the music of Scott Joplin on LPs performed by Joshua Rifkin was the first major inspiration and gateway into classical music for Steve Law as a child. Steve revisits his early musical roots and a style of music he has a special affinity with.
