RESEARCH SEMINAR: Prof Steve Downes
Prof Steve Downes examines Bacharach’s allusions to the sentimental waltz in two songs, ‘A House is not a Home’ and ‘Anyone who had a heart’. These allusions, in which Bacharach's technical sophistication is particularly notable, are taken to raise a number of hermeneutic and generic questions.
