The soothing piano magic of ragtime king Scott Joplin along with Debussy & Scriabin. I just can't stop listening to this CD (Dreamland Piano Gems Circa 1903).

Consider Mark Birnbaum's unique compilation of works (Dreamland Piano Gems Circa 1903) by a remarkable group of composers, one French, another Russian, an Englishman and an American. All were creatively active around the same time, the early twentieth century. All composed in the larger forms - symphonies, concertos, and operas. They are celebrated for their piano miniatures; miniatures but in no way small. In this genre they share, besides the time, a common trait: they were all masters.
