Gottschalk & Origins of Ragtime
By Larry Lobel

Hi Tomi,  It's not true that Gottschalk's music was 'dead' shortly after
his death.  I've provided much supporting evidence for this in my MMD
postings of 7/30/98, 8/17/98 and 8/24/98; see the MMD Archives.

If you want to hear a Gottschalk piece that is almost 'pure' ragtime,
listen to his Polka in B-flat;  available on Hyperion CD performed by
Philip Martin.

I have a collection of sheet music published in Argentina in the 1850s
that has a lot of habaneras and music with other precursors of ragtime.
