|Burt Bacharach With The San Francisco Symphony|
San Francisco Symphony Performance
Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall - 201 Van Ness Aven
One of the most accomplished popular composers of the 20th century, Burt Bacharach performs two concerts of his greatest hits and pop standards with his band and the San Francisco Symphony, plus additional vocalists to be announced. Combining elements of jazz, pop, Brazilian music and rock, Bacharach created a unique new sound that was as contemporary as it was popular. His unrivaled list of hits includes “What the World Needs Now is Love,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” and “(They Long to Be) Close to You.” Bacharach was a 2012 recipient of the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. In May of this year he published his memoir, Anyone Who Had a Heart, offering a frank and riveting account of his unparalleled life. He simultaneously released a two-disc recording of the same name featuring his best known songs. Bacharach will conduct this concert from the piano.
