    The Very Best of the Boston Pops

    One of Arthur Fiedler's many innovations was his strong emphasis on music of American composers. This program showcases works by such homegrown masters as Bernstein (Candide Overture), Copland ("Buckaroo Holiday" from Rodeo), and Ellington ("It Don't Mean a Thing"), plus Leroy Anderson's Piano Concerto with frequent Pops guest Michael Chertock as soloist (May 8 & 9 only.)

    One of Arthur Fiedler's many innovations was his strong emphasis on music of American composers. This program showcases works by such homegrown masters as Bernstein (Candide Overture), Copland ("Buckaroo Holiday" from Rodeo), and Ellington ("It Don't Mean a Thing"), plus Leroy Anderson's Piano Concerto with frequent Pops guest Michael Chertock as soloist (May 8 & 9 only.) Fiedler is credited with discovering Anderson, who created both original compositions, including "The Typewriter," and brilliant arrangements for the Pops. Rounding out the program are familiar movie themes E.T. and Harry Potter by our own John Williams, and "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Dancing Queen." On May 27, join us for the Arthur Fiedler Concert, a heartfelt tribute to the legendary conductor whose name was synonymous with the Boston Pops for nearly fifty years.
