Styxx sent in this rendition of Scott Joplin's "Bethena" (A Concert Waltz). This is the first piece Styxx did with Overture. To achieive a honky-tonk piano sound, he put one of the Steinways on track 1 and the other on track 2 but made the second track slightly out of tune to give it that honky tonk player piano sound.
Here's the mp3 link: http://www.garritan.com/mp3/ms-bethena.mp3
In another post, Styxx provided a link to the pdf score which can be found at www.mutopiaproject.org.
He also sent the MIDI file - http://www.garritan.com/mp3/ms-bethena.mid
I too would like to hear this piece orchestrated.
Here's a GPO Studio file setup for a ragtime band that was used in "Easy Winners" by Tom Hopkins that would work work nicely with this piece : http://garritan.com/mp3/joplin.zip (MIDI files is http://garritan.com/mp3/EasyWinners-Ragtime.mp3)
This would be a fine exercise to orchestrate for a ragtime band. Would anyone like to take a go at it?
Thanks Styxx for sharing this with us. This is a fantastic piece.
