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."
Anderson's Concerto in C for Piano and Orchestra was premiered in 1954. After receiving mixed reviews, the composer withdrew it, intending to revise it. He never got round to making the changes and the work was released posthumously and unedited in 1988. It is now a popular addition to the piano concerto repertoire.
