Arthur Fiedler took great pride in bringing classical music to the world at large. While Leonard Bernstein was busy with his Young People`s Concerts with the New York Philharmonic, Fiedler and his Boston Pops Orchestra (most of the members drawn from the Boston Symphony) gave concerts of popular classics that became a fixture on America`s musical calendar. They made several recordings for Polydor/Deutsche Grammophon and the ever-popular Christmas disc is here reissued with built-in bonus tracks by Bach, Humperdinck and Tchaikovsky, in a sleigh ride, taking the listener from a delightful pot-pourri of carols (`A Christmas Festival`) arranged by Leroy Anderson to Baroque hits in lush orchestrations to high-energy American Christmas songs - all arranged sumptuously for orchestra.
