Martha Mier

"Sophisticated Rag" is a clever little piece. It has an interesting descending bass line, which gives musical direction. The melody is as elegant as the title implies.  It is important not to swing the melody. (And the composer does not indicate to do so!) This type of a rag is laid back and cool! The young pianist needs to enjoy the sycompations and the wdie range of dynamics!
