- Cameron Carpenter, organ
- UPDATE: This performance is proceeding as scheduled, but will be abbreviated slightly from 90 minutes to about 75 minutes to ensure you are able to get home safely and conveniently before the MTA shuts down its systems.
Cameron Carpenter performed his own arrangments of Horowitz's Variations on a Theme from Bizet's Carmen, as well as Bach's Étude-Fantasy for Pedals Alone, from Cello Suite No. 1, Prélude, as encores.
With a proclivity for the dramatic and unparalleled technical prowess, Cameron Carpenter is a superstar of the organ. This musical renegade demonstrates his veneration for Bach in an evening devoted to a selection of the composer’s music, including some arrangements and interpretations that are uniquely Carpenter’s own.
“No other musician of Carpenter’s generation has more adeptly fused shrewd showmanship, dazzling technique, and profound thinking about his instrument and his place in the musical cosmos.”
This performance will be followed by a White Light Lounge.
Please note: Performances begin promptly at their scheduled times.
There is no late seating.
This performance is approximately one hour and 30 minutes long, with no intermission.
