One of the biggest composers of our time is coming to Sweden in June 2013. Burt Bacharach (3 Oscars, 8 Grammy Awards, inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame), along with orchestra and choir, will be performing at the Malmö Opera on Friday 14th June.

The multi-award winning singer, pianist and composer can rightly be described as a legend in the international show business. During his 60 years in the music industry, he has entertained audiences worldwide with endless repertoires of classics like "That's What Friends Are For", "Close To You", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," "I Say A Little Prayer "and" What's New Pussycat ". These are just some of the countless evergreens that many will recognize from the now 85-year-old hit-maker.

Burt Bacharach began his career in the 1950's as a band leader and arranger for one of its contemporary’s biggest stars, Marlene Dietrich. Since then, he has worked with, and written songs for, stars such as Dionne Warwick, The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, The Carpenters, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond.

In recent times, Bacharach has collaborated with names like Jamie Cullum, Elvis Costello and Rufus Wainright, but also with popular artists like Kanye West, White Stripes and Ashanti have benefited as songwriters by sampling Burt's hits.

In 2001, Burt Bacharach was awarded the Polar Music prize for his strong sense of memorable and personal melodies. Until 2012, Bacharach has had 50 Top-10 hits, and over 70 Top-40 hits.
