In the fourth weekend of concerts, BDDS turns to ragtime and the great New England Ragtime Ensemble (NERE). In “Share the Wealth,” performed at the Stoughton Opera House and Madison’s Collins Recital Hall, the focus is on the “classical” composers of ragtime like Scott Joplin, Joseph Lamb, and James Scott—and also on famous classical composers they influenced, like Claude Debussy and Samuel Barber. Pianist John West, another original member of NERE and a brilliant ragtime performer, will join Jeffrey Sykes in a performance of Samuel Barber’s ragtime-influenced Souvenirs for piano four-hands.
