Concert for CARE 2010 was a unique, joyous event. A dozen of the most successful film composers on the planet, plus special guest soloists and comedians, came together in one concert hall for a single cause: to highlight the exceptional and essential work of CARE International.
They all gave so much: many of the composers, in the middle of working on multi-million dollar movies, produced suites of their music especially for the concert; both Jimmy Carr and Ed Byrne had other gigs later that night but made time. A-list soloists Paloma Faith, Imogen Heap, Alfie Boe, Matt Lucas, Jil Aigrot, Caroline Dale and Ricky Wilson were all such warm and generous contributors; and then there was the mighty Royal Philharmonic who, faced with a jam-packed and extremely challenging programme, gave it all they'd got, conducted by the brilliant (and never-less-than-totally-cool) Robert Ziegler.
This glorious book, featuring wonderfully evocative photographs, captures perfectly the generous spirit of the Concert for CARE events. Thanks for buying it - you're helping CARE International continue its challenging work around the world.
