Sleigh Ride -- A Leroy Anderson Centennial Celebration
Volume Two

5/80 Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ
Jasper & Marian Sanfilippo Residence
Barrington, Illinois





Leroy Anderson (1908-1975), composer of timeless hits such as Sleigh Ride, Blue Tango, and The Syncopated Clock, was one of the most important and prolific composers of instrumental music of the 20th century. In honor of Anderson's centennial year, RJE Productions is pleased to present a two-volume release of the nearly complete works of Leroy Anderson.

Sleigh Ride and its companion disc Blue Tango contain 50 compositions and over 2 1/2 hours of Anderson classics, making these discs the most comprehensive collection of Leroy Anderson's music ever recorded - and the only such collection performed on the theatre pipe organ!

In addition, and by special permission of the Anderson family, this disc contains the world-premiere recording of the Cambridge Centennial March Of Industry -- a recently discovered unpublished composition that Leroy Anderson wrote specifically for the organ.
