A Composer/Orchestrator's Best Friend,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: West Side Story (Vocal Score) (Paperback)
My original intention was to buy this and use it to write a small-scale orchestration for the orchestra to use at the high school where I teach. That opportunity hasn't presented itself yet, but I'm still glad I bought this, because there are so many excellent ideas to take in that anyone could spend a long time reading and studying this vocal score. It is beautifully printed, well put together, and very thorough in terms of the intrumental cues. For those who care about the how and why of the music is 'West Side Story' this book is essential.
