Palm Leaf Rag. Composed in 1903 by Scott Joplin this ragtime is both elegant and gracious in its use of syncopation. The trio section foreshadows compositional techniques of over the bar syncopation that he later will be putting to good use in his last ragtimes. Solo Score. Pure Duo Sheet Music, Arrangement for Tenor Saxophone and Baritone Saxophone by Lars Christian Lundholm.
