John Barry and the English Chamber Orchestra

Ian Macdonald

Unforgettable experience

After being John Barry's guest at Abbey Road for a recording session, I couldn't wait for this concert. The Lady press officer at Decca, I will withold her name, contacted me to invite me to the after Concert Party in a private function room. I met John Barry again and several other VIP's and celebs. The concert was superb and the audience were ecstatic with their applause at the end. Super music, super orchestra and an amazing venue at which to stage a fantastic concert by England's most famous and most successful filmscore composer. An unforgettable experience - the party finished at 2am and I walked part way back to my hotel in Baker Street in a daze before doing the other half by cab. i just wish they had filmed this event and released it on DVD - it would be so nice to relive that fantastic Evening. Thank You RAH !!
