Leroy Anderson composed the "Concerto in C for Piano and orchestra" in 1953 in Woodbury, Connecticut. The family of Leroy Anderson commissioned Yulia Fedorov to make an arrangement for solo piano of the 2nd movement "Andante" from the "Concerto in C for Piano and Orchestra". Yulia Fedorov's arrangement was first performed during a recording at the Leroy Anderson House in Woodbury, Connecticut on August 19, 2020.
Leroy Anderson composed "Arietta" in 1962 in Woodbury, Connecticut. The main melody first materialized as a brief eight-measure sketch for viola and cello, intended for Leroy Anderson's daughter Jane on viola and himself on cello. Anderson later decided to expand the melody into a composition for string orchestra. Leroy Anderson is known for his polished orchestrations of descriptive compositions, characterized as romantic or nostalgic in theme. "Arietta" stands in contrast as an elegant, cool and somewhat abstract piece.
Joseph Darcourt performs "Arietta" as a solo cello piece in this recording at the Leroy Anderson House in Woodbury, Connecticut on October 12, 2020.
