Leroy Anderson: A life in pictures
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.
