We remember Arthur Fiedler (1894-1979)

We remember one of the great American musicians of the 20th century.    

Arthur Fiedler was born in Massachusetts on this day in 1894.   His father was a violinist and his mother a pianist.   In other words, he was probably listening to music from a very early age.

In 1930, he became the conductor of The Boston Pops.  His obituary said it all:

For more than half a century, Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra were joined in a musical union that, through concerts, recordings, radio broadcasts and television programs, brought untold musical pleasure to millions of Americans.

Indeed he did.   I recall watching many of h is performances with my father who loved his musical arrangements.
