Cameron Carpenter, organ
March 5, 2015
Juilliard-trained organist Cameron Carpenter’s goals are anything but modest: the brash, outspoken, and phenomenally talented musician and composer wants the organ recognized as a premier recital instrument on par with violins and pianos. Carpenter has energy and vision equal to his talent: his repertoire is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist.
“No other musician of Carpenter’s generation has more adeptly fused the shrewd showmanship, dazzling technique and profound thinking about his instrument and his place in the musical combos.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“A fallen angel who gives the organ back its sin.” – Die Zelt
