Leroy Anderson etched out his own unique place in American music. He was a composer rigorously trained in the classical tradition whose records could top the pop charts, a reclusive personality whose compositions became household words and a meticulous craftsman who could pull one marvellous tune after another out of his hat almost at will.

Here, in the first complete cycle of Anderson’s orchestral music, the Anderson family has made available several pieces that the composer did not release, with some first recordings scattered among the familiar and not-so familiar titles.

Volume One closes with Anderson’s Piano Concerto which, since its revival in 1989, has been receiving an increasing number of performances.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2008


“…the 1953 Piano Concerto… starts out as a Rachmaninov derivative but has a real gem of a slow movement that Gershwin might have signed. It's finely played by Jeffrey Biegel, while Leonard Slatkin and the BBC Concert Orchestra do an excellent job throughout.”

Gramophone Magazine

March 2008

“Naxos's ability to come up with winning ideas at knock-down prices never ceases to amaze… everything here is easy on the ear and beautifully played. It all leaves a delightful aftertaste and excites anticipation of Naxos's next instalment.”
