Length: approx. 2¾ mins. Sounds best with the first tenor doubled.
Klickmann based this humerous rag, with the very apt sub-title A Travesty on Ignacy Paderewski's best known work and widely recognised Menuet, Opus 14 No. 1 which itself was based the popular 16th century French dance in 3/4 time named the minuet.
This is a fine jolly piece, well suited to the lower registers of tenor and bass recorders but quite demanding.
Paderewski Rag was published by McKinley Music Co., Chicago & New York, USA.
Klickmann, tongue-in-cheek, prescribed Tempo di Rag, a tempo of 80 crotchets/min. seems about right.
