Leroy Andersons approach to his compositions has always been a major inspiration for me. Even though short and concise, his music was always full of wit, emotion and joy. Looking back now it's certainly incredible to see how much he influenced the world of film- and broadway music and how revolutionary his approach was back then.

 

Not to say that The Old Anew exist only because of him, but he definitely influenced the final sound of this piece.
