about

"Fiddler on the Roof" is one of the seminal musicals in the American Musical Theater cannon and this treasure chest of never-before
released private demos gives an insight into the creation of that masterpiece. Composer Jerry Bock would send a musical “seed” to lyricist Sheldon Harnick who would then write the words.

Hear Bock create the music for “Sunrise, Sunset.” Hear Bock almost forget the tune to what would become “If I Were A Rich Man.” Hear songs that never made it into the show. Hear 33 Jerry Bock songs that never even had a lyric.

The listener becomes a “fly on the wall,” and is in the room
actually witnessing the creation of "Fiddler on the Roof." These
private demos made over 50 years ago reveal the collaborative
process of Bock and Harnick as they compose the songs to
their masterpiece. This release is a must for anyone who loves
Musical Theater, anyone who loves "Fiddler on the Roof," any
aspiring songwriter, anyone who loves music: in effect, everyone.
