Much recorded, famously as an arrangement for harp, tenor banjo and tuba by Robert Maxwell in the 1950's, Spaghetti Rag
is a lovely, bubbly flowing affair in AABBCCA form with a 12-bar introduction. In this adaptation for recorder, the A-, B- and C-strains are shared by the treble, descant and 1st tenor voices respectively. The A-strain is a breathtaking stream of sixteenths from start to finish - a delightful treble solo. The B-strain contrasts with a dialogue between triplet chords of the upper voices and pronounced um-pahs on the four one beats from the rhythm section. The 1st tenor takes the C-strain also abound with sixteenths allowing virtuosity to be shown on his or her part. All-in-all a terrific ensemble piece!
