West Side Story, of course, is Bernstein's megahit about a Romeo and Juliet among Hell's Kitchen street gangs in the 1950s. Both scores create an engaging blend of Musical Comedy, Jazz, and dance music inspired by Stravinsky and Copland. These selections amply demonstrate both this music's complexity and popular appeal. Please don't misunderstand; these dance selections are no more muzak Bernstein than the Carmen suites are muzak Bizet. The trouble is, Norton doesn't have the On The Town dances. The pages are easy to read, the paper's acid free, the softcover is durable. So, if you're a Bernstein freak, like me, perhaps you should bite the bullet.
With innovative works such as West Side Story and On The Town, composer Leonard Bernstein helped revolutionise Broadway in just a few short years. Photo: Fred Fehl/Museum Of The City If New York. When Candide opened on 1 December 1956, the operetta was characterised as too highbrow and it closed after only 73 performances. Bernstein’s score, however, was the silver lining that kept companies coming back. With its wide range of great tunes, Candide included a tango, a mazurka, a barcarolle and an aria, among many other chosen moments that added up to a brilliant display of orchestral pyrotechnics, the whole thing capped by a scintillating ‘Overture’ which soon became a classic in concert halls around the world.
The four shows On the Town, Wonderful Town, Candide, and West Side Story show a progressive line of stylistic integration in Leonard Bernstein's compositional development. An ever-advancing economy of musical means and tightening of structure proceeds from one show to the next. Many people think that, in West Side Story, this theory began to be implemented. Elements from the European and American musical stage traditions were fused into an original art form that is neither opera nor musical comedy. From the Old World tradition came complicated vocal ensembles, such as the Quintet in Act I: the use of music to project the story line forward (as in the duet A Boy Like That); the dramatic device of leitmotifs-for instance, the one associated with the reality of gang violence, as in the Prologue, or the one associated with the diametrically.
