Aviation Rag is a another splendid Marzian composition which he wrote under the name of Mark Janza. Its form is AABBCDCDC with a 4-bar introduction. The melodies soar in keeping with both the rag's title and the aircraft depicted on the front cover of the original sheet music. This transcription for recorder ensemble is a treble's delight with soaring and swooping passages which explore the complete compass of that instrument's tonal range. Glissandi in the C- and D-strains, the icing on the cake, add to the general excitement presenting the performer with a formidable task just the stuff for the brave hearted!
This adaptation for recorder is respectfully dedicated to the Boeing Aircraft Co., Seattle, manufacturer of that 20th century aviation icon, The 747.
Aviation Rag was published by the Keithley & Marzian Music Co., Louisville, Kentucky, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a treble solo version of this item.
