The Typewriter (Song)

[Thanks to Henry]

Leroy Anderson (1908-1975) was an American composer of short, light concert pieces, many of which were introduced by the Boston Pops Orchestra under the direction of Arthur Fiedler. As with all his other compositions, Leroy Anderson wrote The Typewriter for orchestra, completing the work on October 9, 1950.

This particular orchestration was performed in a June 12, 2011 concert by members of the National Orchestra and Chorus of Spain in Madrid.
The (typewriter) soloist is Alfredo Anaya.

"Boston Pops Orchestra under the direction of Arthur Fiedler"

Boy, do we miss him! Specially those of use from Massachusetts. His Christmas Concerts were always such fun. Mr. Claus himself..

Thanks, as they say, for the memories.

Ahh! Thanks Eolake, I found myself clapping. Charles Ives is another American composer with a sense of humor. using faux italian for a musical notation; 'con blasto'.
