It was Arthur Fiedler who first hired Leroy Anderson in 1936 as an arranger for the Boston Pops. When Anderson began writing original compositions, Fiedler was the first to perform the pieces. Fiedler's tempi cloely match the composer's own. The fine musicians of the Boston Pops under Fiedler's demanding leadership never disappoint. Along with any recording by conductor Leonard Slatkin, this is one of the very best. While Fiedler recorded many Anderson compositions on numerous compilation discs, this is the only Boston Pops recording with any conductor to consist exclusively of Anderson's works. Add this fine disc to your Leroy Anderson collection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
