Leonard Bernstein: One Hand, One Heart (West Side Story) - SATB/Piano

Books | SATB, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: Leonard Bernstein
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

One Hand, One Heart is a duet from the hit musical West Side Story. It is sung by the two main protagonists, Maria and Tony, as they dream about their wedding and their life together. It is a bittersweet song, as it marks the sole moment of happiness for the couple before reality returns, and fear and violence are restored.

West Side Story is possibly the most famous musical ever. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, it is set in 1950s New York City, and chronicles the life, love, and losses of two rival gangs. Written in 1957 with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, the original setting was highly topical, as gang violence was rife at the time, but it is often seen as a metaphor for many areas of conflict - one of the reasons the production has remained popular to this day.

        This is a great easy to sing piece for my choir, GRAMMATICUS.
        The choral writing sits nicely in all parts and we were able to present a good performance after only one rehearsal.
