This arrangement of Schubert's Traumerei will no doubt not find much favour amongst the purists but for the ragtimer, it is a welcome addition to the genre's repertoire of syncopated waltzes and jazzed-up classics. Here one should pay particular attention to the publisher's modest blurb and their full instructions:

NOTICE: we were first to publish this kind of music. Our Syncopated Waltzes are strictly original. We have the greatest collection in the world.
IMPORTANT: When playing our Syncopated Waltzes, be very careful not to separate the tied notes, see that proper accent is given [to the] last eighth note in each measure where it is tied to the first note in the next measure. Do not play too fast. If you are familiar with our "Home Sweet Home" Syncopated Waltz you should play this beautiful arrangement easily.       The Publishers.

In this adaptation for recorder septet, it is strongly recommended that the melody voices double-tongue (ti-ki ti-ki ti-ki) the final non-syncopated passages.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Traumerei was published by Warner C. Williams & Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
