Music

A composer of short, light-hearted miniature tones, many of which were given their first performances by the Boston Pops Orchestra under the direction of Arthur Fiedler. His best known works include: Sleigh Ride; Blue Tango; The Syncopated Clock; The Typewriter and Bugler’s Holiday. His works also include a 17 minute Piano Concerto that was released posthumously and a Broadway Musical "Goldilocks".

Life

Leroy Anderson was educated at Harvard, receiving his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Music. Among his teachers were Piston and Enescu. He first came to the attention of Arthur Fiedler of the Boston Pops Orchestra when he arranged some Harvard college songs for the Boston Pops to play. He was asked to show anything original to Fiedler and eventually he wrote "Jazz Pizzicato" which Fiedler performed and recorded.
