Product Description

Rialto Ripples Rag was composed by George Gershwin and Will Donaldson. It is Gershwin's first published instrumental and his only piano rag. Already a successful composer, Will Donaldson befriended George Gershwin when Gershwin was a teen-age song plugger and an aspiring but unpublished composer for Remick Music Publishers. He apparently assisted Gershwin in getting Remick to publish this piano rag, but it is not known whether he actually contributed to the composition or simply loaned his name to get the work published. Rialto Ripples was first made into a piano roll in 1916, then published in 1917.

This arrangement for clarinet choir is by James Mack. The instrumentation is E-flat clarinet, B-flat clarinet 1-3, alto clarinet, bass clarinet, and contra clarinet. Alternate (optional) parts have been included for Alto Clarinet (Clarinet 4 or Basset Horn), and E-flat contra-alto clarinet in place of the B-flat contrabass clarinet.
