The music of Scott Joplin, the “King of Ragtime”, achieved a newfound popularity in the mid-1970s, nearly sixty years after the composer’s death. Its beguiling synthesis of African-American syncopations and European musical forms is eloquently captured by Itzhak Perlman and André Previn.

At first glance the worlds of classical music and pop might seem diametrically opposed – the former signifying straight-backed refinement and the latter youthful rambunctiousness – but as these two-dozen tracks attest, there are occasions when these unlikely bedfellows have resulted in a harmonious union.

Sebastião Tapajós is a renowned Brazilian musician with over 50 recorded albums. A classically-trained violonista (acoustic guitar player), he soon awakened to his own musical expression, which bridges the gap between the rich Brazilian tradition and the delicacy, subtlety, and sophistication of the classical tradition. He received more than 20 awards in his career, including Germany's Album of the Year. Touring intensively through Europe, he has played and recorded with Gerry Mulligan, Astor Piazzolla, Oscar Peterson, Paquito de Rivera, Zimbo Trio, Hermeto Pascoal, and many others, with concerts attended by more than 600,000 people.

Not being a lifelong Wagner devotee, I'm not sure if this particular performance has been released before or not, but I do know that it was included in a 2013 9-title release of Wagner operas recorded live from The Met from 1937 through 1954.

Why this performance? 3 words: Flagstad, Melchior, Huehn. I would add to that Leinsdorf, especially since the recording quality is so bad; his faster-than-the-norm tempi help cut through the densely muddy sound quality.
