What The World Needs Now…The Music Of Burt Bacharach
The Hallé, Bridgewater Hall, November 23rd 2012
‘Love this venue. We went to see What The World Needs Now…The Music of Burt Bacharach with the always magnificent Hallé Orchestra. Vocalists were Alison Jiear, Abbie Osmon, Sarah Lark and Graham Bickley, I am ashamed to say we hadn’t heard of any of them, but ohhh what voices. The Hallé was conducted for this concert by Richard Balcombe. It was a nostalgic roller coaster of an evening. Did this man ever right a bad song (with Hal David)? If you get the chance to wallow in the delights of this concert do not waste the opportunity. We would certainly relish the chance to listen to these wonderful songs again, with the Hallé of course, (we are biased)’.
