Leroy Anderson's most famous piece is The Syncopated Clock, which became a well-known television tune in the 1950s. Anderson, a native of New Haven, Connecticut, was one of those composers who new his limitations exactly, and never wrote beyond them. He was a master at orchestral miniatures: short, tuneful pieces of musical fluff--but very high-quality fluff. Anderson lavished as much attention on one of his miniatures as Wagner did on his monster operas. They are the musical equivalent of Fabergé eggs. Slatkin treats these little gems with the loving attention they deserve, and you'll be amazed by how many of the tunes jog your memory. A delight. --David Hurwitz
