Of all of Robert's ragtime compositions Pork and Beans must surely take the cake. As a piano piece this work is certainly not for the faint-hearted and as an adaptation for recorder ensemble even more so. Heavily ornamented, as ragged as it gets and fiendishly difficult with the briefest of chords demanding synchronised tonguing of the highest order all make this a very rewarding piece to tackle. Its form is AABACDC with a 4-bar introduction the B-strain of which has an unusual 18 bars. The cover of the original sheet music shows a smiling porker gazing into a pot of beans as large as himself. Why this porcine individual should be so happy is hard to understand when facing a future that entails his own demise and transformation into Harlem's favourite culinary delight. Exquisitely New York!
Pork and Beans was published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
