Lara Downes: for lenny - West Side Story

West Side Story - Podcast

from Lara Downes....West Side Story... It's my favorite musical and my favorite movie. I can literally lip-sync the whole show. And it's a piece of American music that changed everything - the future of Broadway musicals, American opera, the way we tell American stories and the kinds of stories we tell... This week I'm showcasing the spirit of adventure and innovation that brought the show to life, and I'm thrilled to introduce a rising star - Mexican/American clarinetist Javier Morales-Martinez, who joins me for a very cool new version of the song Cool from West Side Story.
