About

For the Bernstein centenary, Guild is proud to release Nettle and Markham's recording of their arrangement of Scenes from West Side Story. This was the duo's first large-scale transcription for two pianos. Created for the Berlin Festival, it was an immediate success. It formed part of Leonard Bernstein's official 70th birthday celebrations in 1988 and brought David and Richard into contact with the composer  no stranger to two piano performance and transcription playing  in his last years. Some time later, they were delighted to present him with this recording which has been re-mastered for its release on Guild. Also on the disc are Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's Four Piece Suite and Percy Grainger's Fantasy on Gershwin's Porgy and Bess.
