Yes, the “bad boy” of the organ returns to the great Aeolian Skinner pipe organ of the Princeton University Chapel, where he amazed and dazzled a packed house two years ago. Cameron Carpenter has singlehandedly added a new dimension to the traditional organ recital, bringing it to a new generation of audiences who have discovered him on YouTube. A Carpenter concert is a musical experience, and his astounding technique (both hands and feet) continue to amaze, and so will his repertoire, which encompasses everything from Bach to The Beatles. Unorthodox, controversial, and flamboyant, Carpenter is a true original, guaranteed to break your preconceptions of the pipe organ as a concert instrument, and his artistry will be projected on two screens, treating the audience to an up-close view of his virtuosic fingers and his dancing feet.
Program will include :
Albeniz: Evocation (from Iberia)
Wagner: Forest Murmurs (from Siegfried)
And selections by J.S. Bach
plus new compositions by the artist
Listen to McCarter's Special Programming Director, Bill Lockwood, talk about Cameron and how this artist has singlehandedly added a new dimension to the traditional organ recital.
