What The World Needs Now…The Music Of Burt Bacharach

Snape Proms, Aldeburgh, August 31st 2013


‘The forces on stage worked hard to achieve a slick and fast moving show… as well as Graham Bickley’s assured and stylish singing, vocal duties were also taken by three doyennes of the musical theatre and cabaret world… I was struck by the beautiful precision and warmth that the string players did achieve, especially in the quieter numbers….real hairs on the back of the neck stuff… Favourite moment? Tricky, with so many cracking songs expertly performed… Britten knew a thing or two about writing for the human voice and I feel sure he would have quietly appreciated hearing another master of his art being given this sort of treatment in his concert hall’
