Black composer extraordinaire!

Postby Ecmandu » Fri Jul 17, 2020 10:07 pm

There are ONLY two composers in all of music history where everyone knows their songs!

Both of them are played on ice cream trucks.

One is Beethoven:

1.) fur Elise (an ice cream truck song)
2.) the opening notes to the first movement of his 5th symphony

The other is a black dude... Scott Joplin

1.) the entertainer

Also played on ice cream trucks!

It’s a huge compliment to a composer to be known by tune, by everyone.

No other classical composers can claim this.

This is actually my favorite Joplin song! Not nearly as famous as “the entertainer” - isn’t that the thing with music though!

Called “easy winners”
