Notes & Reviews:

Arrangements for trumpet of some of Gershwin's and Bernstein's most popular works are performed by internationallyknown artist Guy Touvron. Touvron has more than 100 recordings in his discography and is a professor at the Paris Conservatory.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The Bernstein portion of the program consists of a dapper little 'Rondo for Lifey' and a 15-minute West Side Story suite with 'Something's Coming', 'Maria', 'Tonight', 'One Hand, One Heart', 'I Feel Pretty', and 'Somewhere'. The beautiful and creative arrangement includes a wistful accordion.
