Rialto Ripples was composed by George Gershwin. It was made into a piano roll in 1916, then published in 1917 the same year
the first jazz recording was made and issued by the
Original Dixieland Jazz Band. In those days Ragtime was performed
by various ensembles of size and instrumentation, not necessarily
solo piano or concert band. Here I use the instrumentation of strings,
woodwinds, banjo and percussion.
