David played this concert at the Capri Theatre, Adelaide in February this year.  He chose Love and Money as the theme that ran through all the pieces. They included “I Can’t Give You Anything but Love Baby”, “What the World Needs Now”, released in 1965, written by Burt Bacharach and another popular piece by the Beatles “Can’t Buy Me Love” released in 1964.

David played a moving rendition of “Saving All My Love for You”, sung by Whitney Houston and recorded in 1985. He used innovative registrations, which demonstrated the limitless range of the sounds of the organ. He was continually using different dynamic ranges to wonderful effect in all the pieces.  He displayed enormous sensitivity and musicality, which enhanced the enjoyment of the pieces. His technical ability was also outstanding. The Lion King is an American animated musical film released in 1994. The original songs were written by Elton John. David played 3 well known favourites “Be Prepared”, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King”. Once again, he continually changed the registrations to produce some haunting delicate sounds. He also used the percussion superbly to enhance the melodies and add special effects.

He played a moving piece, “Brother Can you Spare a Dime”.  This has become a Depression-Era Anthem for our times. The tune was written by Jay Gorney in 1932 after the U.S. stock market collapsed, pulling many International markets down with it. His last bracket before Interval was a selection of songs By Cole Porter. These included “You Do Something to Me”, “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”, and “So in Love”. He finished with “Nice Work If You Can Get It”. This was written by George and Ira Gershwin in 1937.

 

How best can I describe the treat of the Silent Film, Seven Chances, shown after Interval? It’s a 1925 American Comedy starring Buster Keaton.   I can’t remember when I laughed so much. The audience around me was also in fits of laughter enjoying this classic comedy.  David’s organ accompaniment was enthralling and outstanding.  He wrote all the music himself and kept changing the mood to fit in with what was happening on the screen.
