Since its opening in 1957 the musical West Side Story has been a hit on Broadway. Made into a successful film starring Rita Moreno, Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer in 1961, this tale of star-crossed lovers, caught between feuding New York gangs, has been gripping audiences for decades.
The arrangements in the West Side Story: Instrumental Solos series remain faithful to Bernstein's original score. In this edition the pieces have been idiomatically adapted for the solo Cello.
