Description
This recording is a very brief piano practice/script reading session for Act 1 of the Broadway play "The West Side waltz", featuring three short piano exercises and Johann Strauss II's "Du und Du" (excerpts, one full sequence for play). It is uncertain if Ms. Hepburn and/or her piano teacher/piano consultant Laura Fratti is acutally playing the piano on the recording, so the pianist is currently unidentified.
