Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------------ARTHUR FIEDLER AND THE BOSTON POPS: AN IRREVERENT MEMOIR by Harry Ellis Dickson, Prologue by Ellen Bottomley Fiedler, Epilogue by John Williams. Arthur Fiedler conducted the Boston Pops Orchestra for 50 years, including during the first decade of the EVENING AT POPS television series, and shaped the Orchestra's personality. During his tenure, Fiedler and his music librarian pored over the light classical repertoire -- works that rarely find their way onto symphony programs -- and compiled an enormous collection of favorite marches, overtures, suites, symphonies, rhapsodies, Broadway show tunes, and novelty songs that soon became familiar to Pops goers. "We play all kinds of music," Fiedler was fond of saying, "except the boring kind." Harry Ellis Dickson was appointed Music Director of the Boston Classical Orchestra in 1983 and Music Director Laureate in 1999. He served as Associate Conductor Laureate of the Boston Pops and the Founder and Conductor Laureate of the Boston Symphony Youth Concerts until his death in March 2003. A native of Cambridge, Mr. Dickson was a graduate of Somerville High School and the New England Conservatory of Music. He joined the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1938 under Serge Koussevitsky, was named Assistant Conductor of the Pops in 1958 and Associate Conductor in 1980. He founded the Boston Symphony's current Youth Concert series in 1959. The distinguished recipient of numerous awards, Mr. Dickson was honored by the City of Somerville in 1976, when the Harry Ellis Dickson Center of Fine Arts and Humanities was dedicated in its Winter Hill Community School. In 1983, the Boston Public Schools honored him by dedicating the Harry Ellis Dickson Orchestral Suite at Madison Park High School. In 1991, the City of Boston, in collaboration with the Boston Fenway Group and the Boston Redevelopment Authority, dedicated the Harry Ellis Dickson Park on Westland Avenue near Symphony Hall. An ardent collector of anecdotes about music and musicians, Mr. Dickson incorporated many of them into his books, Gentlemen, More Dolce Please, Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, and Beating Time. In March 2003, Harry Ellis Dickson died at the age of 94. One of the truly obscure anecdotes about Fiedler (not included herein) tells of the time he and Dickson met on the roof of Carnegie Hall to discuss an upcoming program of the Boston Pops. This meeting served as the inspiration for the serious theatre-piece, "Fiedler On The Roof." Unfortunately, it opened at the same time as the popular musical, "Fiddler On The Roof," which seriously foreshadowed it and led to its abbreviated run on Broadway.
