Solace (violin viola duo)


Title: Solace

Composer: Scott Joplin, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin and Viola

Printout: 4 pages

Note: Subtitled A Mexican Serenade, Solace is full of syncopations and Latinesque rhythms that, when played at a “very slow march tempo” as the composer indicated, give the piece a sinuous and sultry character quite different from much of Joplin’s other ragtime music. Published in 1909, Solace represents the mature Joplin at his most elegant.

This arrangement of Solace is also available in the Bargain Bundle The Joplin Collection for Violin and Viola, Set 1.
