Program Notes

This entertaining and witty production number is from the Broadway show Wonderful Town. As the title implies, this "rag" encounters some curious melodic entanglements as well as unexpected rhythmic entanglements.

- Program Note by publisher


Leonard Bernstein’s Wonderful Town opened at the Winter Garden Theater in New York City on February 23, 1953, swiftly winning a Tony award for Best Musical. The whimsical and quirky The Wrong Note Rag superbly captures the lighter side of this award-winning musical gem.
