West Side Story
I listened to the entire West Side Story last night. It was conducted by Bernstein and done very well. I have played this with New World orch. in high school and I'd like to say we sounded really good but nothing compared to this. I love the spontinaity (i dont care if i spelled it wrong) of bernstein. Its such exciting music and different than anything I've ever heard. When we played it, we primarily just played the music with a guest singer for Maria so I didnt really know the story well, but know I have a general understanding. It is easily one of the greatest musicals ever written and if you disagree, you shouldnt be in the music school. See you in class.
