Some hardcore Anderson fanatics might recall Alma Matera staid and respectful homage to Anderson 's own alma mater Harvard University. But chances are even they have never heard its predecessor, Harvard Sketcheswhich is far more irreverent and striking; the movement "Widener Reading Room" could pass for something right out of Charles Ives : placid strings are interrupted by the murmuring winds students and chastened by an ever more impatiently rapping ruler.
This points up an interesting sidelight about Anderson ; while experimental elements were not entirely foreign to his musical thinking -- after all, even pieces like The Typewriter are a little experimental within its own context -- he didn't really want to be seen that way, so he held the experiments back.
Melody on Two Notes is another case in point; this piece for student orchestra is based around a motive of a rising and falling fifth, the rest of it is all in the harmony and orchestration, which envelops the simple figure in a drapery of lush elegance.
While it is very short, the piece shows both a mastery of orchestration and a subtle, tongue-in-cheek humor. Slatkin and the BBC Concert Orchestra 's readings are pristine, but are also spontaneous sounding and never stodgy nor ingratiating in the wrong way. The only thing wrong with this Naxos project is that even with all of the wonderful new Anderson material included, we're only to three volumes, and pretty soon Naxos is going to run to the end of his relatively small catalog.
