    Joshua Rifkin to Perform at New York's (Le) Poisson Rouge for 40th Anniversary of Nonesuch Joplin "Piano Rags" Album

    Four decades ago, Nonesuch Records released recordings of Scott Joplin's Piano Rags by musicologist/conductor/pianist Joshua Rifkin that would go on to ignite a national passion for ragtime jazz in the United States in the early 1970s and "created, almost alone, the Scott Joplin revival," as New York magazine wrote. They also resulted in the label's first million-selling record.

    Now, 40 years later, Joshua Rifkin will make his debut at (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York City on Sunday, January 30, performing the music of Joplin and kindred spirit J.S. Bach in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the album.

    For more information and to order tickets to the event, visit lepoissonrouge.com, where, for a limited time, you'll find a free download of Rifkin's performance of Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag."

    To pick up a copy of Piano Rags with the complete album included as high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout, visit the Nonesuch Store, where you'll available find Rifkin’s The Baroque Beatles Book, another milestone from the early days of Nonesuch, featuring Baroque-era arrangements of the Fab Four’s Top 40 hits.
