Fiddler on the Roof is one of the seminal musicals in the American musical theater canon, 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 lyrics. Plus a new interview with Sheldon Harnick, where he talks about working with Bock, Richard Rodgers, and others.
