The World's Greatest Music
Leroy Anderson was the composer behind light music classics such as 'The Typewriter', and the Christmas favourite, 'Sleigh Ride'. Championed by Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, Anderson has been dubbed by John Williams as "one of the great American masters of light orchestral music."
Fiedler - pictured right - and the Boston Pops were the first orchestra to perform and record many of Anderson's compositions. During these years Anderson also performed alongside his brother in various dance orchestras. They also performed on cruise ships of the Norwegian Line crossing the Atlantic.
