Symphonic Dances from "West Side Story" *: Symphonic Dances from West Side Story: Cool Fugue (Allegretto)
Label: MASTERWORKS BROADWAY
The lively and percussive original 1957 score. This inner city adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is the first time Puerto Rican gang life was depicted on Broadway. Regardless of your generation, you'll recognize the hits, including "Somewhere" and "Maria." Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
