Crab Apples is another of Wenrich's pleasant, undemanding numbers. I am quite at a loss as how this ragtime two-step relates to crab apples as the music is perfectly edible - tenor players especially will enjoy this piece. This is a "classic" ragtime composition. After a 4-bar introduction the work opens with two a 16-bar repeated sections. This is then followed by a trio comprising a 4-bar introduction and two repeated 16-bar sections.
Crab Apples was published by Brehm Bros, Erie, Pennsylvania, USA.
There is also a tenor solo version of this item.
