The Typewriter, by Leroy Anderson


You may think you haven’t heard The Typewriter, but I bet you have!

“The Typewriter for Orchestra” was written by Leroy Anderson in 1950. In this performance, the soloist is Alfredo Anaya, with conductor Miguel Roa, at the Concierto “Voces para la Paz”, Músicos Solidarios, Auditorio Nacional de Música de Madrid, in 2011. It is one of the silliest performances using a typewriter you’ll ever see.
