Combination March

Combination March was the second published march (1896) by composer Scott Joplin (1868–1917) and is one of his earliest works. The meaning of “combination” is unknown. Gunther Schuller orchestrated the March in the early 1970's for concert band, and captured the light- ness and spirit of the composer’s early works for piano. One of Joplin’s most famous pieces, Maple Leaf Rag, was published in 1899 and was followed over the next two decades by more than 50 rags and other compositions, including two operas. (Source: JRO)
