Rediscovered Bernstein

My old teacher once joked that I liked the play the unplayable.  Some others took that to meant that I had a penchant for difficult pieces by Ernst, Paganini or Wieniawski.  While that might have been true when I was in my 20's, I find that reconstructing or resurrecting lost violin pieces is much more my thing.

In this case, I was happy to be involved in the rediscovery of an arrangement made by Leonard Bernstein of "Somehwere" from West Side Story.  The complete story can be found at:
