Leonard Bernstein's life-long friend and collaborator Sid Ramin talked with the composer's daughter, Jamie, about orchestrating West Side Story both for the Broadway show and the film version.

Prior to the New York Philharmonic's concert of the complete score -- performed live while the newly re-mastered film is shown -- Ramin talked about orchestrating in New York vs Los Angeles or Broadway vs the movies; scoring in ink or Irv Kostal; Lenny, Jerry (Jerome Robbins) and "Officer Krupke;" and growing up and working with Lenny.
