"Bethena" written in 1905, shortly after the death of Joplin's wife, Freddie. Presumably it reflects Joplins mood at the time, being sadly poignant, a contrast with his other waltzes. It is one of the greatest of ragtime waltzes.

Play as if it were a Nocturne by Chopin to bring out the lyrical poetry of the work.
