Music by Leroy Anderson is a joy to behold. All of his compositions are deceptively simple, but profound in their insight into the subject each one addresses.

For example, the bridge of Serenata could have been written by J. S. Bach, yet is also as warm and loving as any lover's serenade.

For the orchestra's musicians Anderson's music is maddenly difficult to play with the required precision needed for such "simple" music. Performers always find that it is very easy to mess up Anderson's music.

Composer/conductor John Williams acknowledged Anderson as equally an important composer as Copland and Bernstein saying Anderson's writing of "the bon-bon" belongs as much to the meal as the entree.

At their heart every Anderson melody refreshes our own hearts with their simple honesty and clarity. How fortunate we are that Anderson's own heart had such purity that can reach any audience

the two albums recorded by Frederick Fennell and the Eastman-Rochester Pops Orchestra in the late 1950s constitute the finest interpretation of Anderson's work that I have ever heard.
