Somewhere


Wind Band

Song Arrangement

Grade

3

Duration

3.35

The Bernstein/Sondheim musical West Side Story is regarded as a classic of the art form. All of the songs from the show are famous in their own right.

The melodic shape of the song Somewhere is interesting, apparently borrowing a phrase shape from the fifth bar of the slow movement of Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto and another longer phrase from the main theme of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

This arrangement was used on the RAF Massed Bands Tour 1999.
