Another great concert from Orchestra of St John’s, at Wigmore Hall. But don’t take our word for it!
“Another enjoyable lunchtime in this excellent series. Alastair Campbell proved to be a likeable and articulate interviewee, at times voicing some decidedly controversial opinions. His choice of music was eclectic and superbly played and sung.” 5/5
“The host, Paul Blezard, felt that he had made a new friend in Alastair Campbell, who skilfully engaged the audience with his honesty, humour, and, most memorably, his playing ‘Ode to Joy’ on the bagpipes with the splendid Orchestra of St John’s. Special mention should be made of Hannah Fraser-Mackenzie, the late replacement soprano, who switched so easily from Motown to Verdi. Being so well entertained in the wonderful venue of the Wigmore Hall was a particularly enjoyable way to spend a lunchtime.” 5/5
