Program Notes

Composed for the Boston Pops Brass, American Dances by Robert W. Smith is a multi-movement work on American popular dances and music. This work was premiered as part of the orchestra's summer season at Tanglewood in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

This movement, entitled Rag, is based on the unique American ragtime style developed in New Orleans, LA in the late 1800s. Scott Joplin, along with other great artists, created a new style of music that served as the forerunner to jazz and almost every other form of American popular music.
