Andante from Concerto in C for Piano and Orchestra

//
  As I studied the score of Leroy Anderson's Concerto in C, the second movement, 'Andante', quickly became my favorite.  It resonated with many other romantic classical pieces that I love playing.  It reminded me of music by Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, and Tchaikovsky.  But along with its romantic lyricism, long phrases, sincere and breathtaking openness, there is a special, Leroy Anderson signature.

A Christmas Festival

//  "This piece is very special to me, and has been a part of my life since I was just a baby.  The New Westminster and District Concert Band, a group that many of my family members and I play in, performs "A Christmas Festival" every year at their annual Christmas concert.  As we were unable to perform it for Christmas 2020, I created this piano arrangement to share in the joy of this medley from home.  When writing this arrangement, I aimed to capture the many different stylistic characters and ingenious countermelodies that make this piece a perennial favourite."
