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."
In 1958, Anderson composed the music for a Broadway show Goldilocks. Even though it earned two Tony awards and his score was well-received, the story was criticised as being weak. Goldilocks was not a commercial success and Anderson never wrote another musical. Pictured are Leroy Anderson with music director Lehman Engel at the studio recording of Goldilocks in 1958
