Notes & Reviews:

Like Gershwin before him, Leonard Bernstein (1918–1990) composed music for the concert hall and for musical theatre. Through the Broadway musical 'West Side Story', his name reached a far larger audience than that of virtually every other modern American composer, with the possible exception of Gershwin himself. The pieces on this disc illustrate Bernstein's work in the theatre.
