1) The Sting – Scott Joplin and Marvin Hamlisch, arranged by John CacavasThe
The 1973 movie The Sting was based on a true story about two brothers, Fred and Charley Gondorff, grifters who plied their craft in America during the Depression. The soundtrack featured ragtime music, which had passed out of vogue by the 1930s, but the movie’s popularity sparked a revival of interest in composer Scott Joplin and ragtime more broadly. The movie includes Marvin Hamlisch playing some of Joplin’s tunes on solo piano, while others were arranged for larger orchestras. The inventive collaboration between Joplin and Hamlisch produced an indelible musicallandmark. Here are selections from The Sting.
