Welcome on the Website of the Association Ragtime Emotion

Why "Ragtime Emotion"?

Ragtime emerged from the Afro-American music culture of the American South at end of the 19th century. It is one of the precursors of Jazz. The success of the film "The Sting" demonstrated that Ragtime is music with tremendous popularity potential. It is rhythmic and can be dreaming, from simple tunes to extremely sophisticated melodies. Its' emotional qualities go directly to the heart. The range of Ragtime as written music goes from popular tunes to demanding depth and high complexity. The artists are challenged to high virtuosity. Inexperienced listeners first react with astonishment (ah, THIS is Ragtime!), then with awe about the versatility and finally with delight about the refinement of this somehow forgotten music style.

If you want to surprise and delight friends or customers you will find a suitable event or artist at "Ragtime Emotion".
