You guys are in for a treat with this episode. Not only are we covering David's favorite musical of all time, West Side Story, were doing it with a bonafide PH.D. holder. Jay Hurst, a wonderful and incredibly talented composer, has come on the podcast to bring his musical expertise to give a crash course on some of the dense musical motifs present in Leonard Bernstein's incredible compositions. They also talk about the unreality of world, racial dynamics in and out of the film, and just gushing about how good this thing is. Its sonic feast this week on A Place For Film and we hope you take something from it.
The audio quality of Elizabeth and David occasionally drops due to a recording error. Its very clear and listenable, this is just a heads up!
