Product Description

Notes on the music


The Music of Leroy Anderson is a tribute to one of America’s true originals. Leroy Anderson’s music is unique, fun and has never lost its quality of freshness. His music sparkles with elegance and embodies the essence of his poetic soul rich with lyricism, wit and ingenuity. His imagination offers an array of colors, sonorities, moods and emotion — never ceasing to uplift the spirit, each piece speaking to the listener’s heart. The album features not only Leroy Anderson’s most famous pieces, like The Syncopated Clock, Bugler’s Holiday, The Typewriter and Sandpaper Ballet, it also features Catherine Wilson performing Anderson’s Piano Concerto in C major. Of course, no Leroy Anderson album would be complete without his best-loved work — Sleigh Ride, which is also included. Ensemble Vivant is joined by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra conducted by the legendary Skitch Henderson, known coast to coast as the band leader on the Tonight Show with Steve Allen.

  1. Ensemble Vivant offers nod to Leroy Anderson 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2011

    Another recent Ensemble Vivant recording to be warmly received was The Music Of Leroy Anderson. This placed the American composer’s compositions in intimate chamber settings. Catherin Wilson performed Anderson’s only Piano Concerto with members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the legendary Skitch Henderson. “He loved my playing so much he wanted me to perform with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, I did that to a sold-out Hall in 2005,” says Wilson, with justified pride. Her TSO performance was filmed as part of a documentary on Anderson’s life called Once Upon A Sleigh Ride, one that has received plenty of U.S. exposure on PBS and the Classical Arts Showcase label.
