Cameron Carpenter is having a ball smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music, all while generating worldwide acclaim. In this program he will be playing teh International Touring Organ -- a monumental digital organ of his own design. The organ was officially introduced with two Lincoln Center concerts in March 2014.
In this performance, Carpenter will showcase the breadth of the revolutionary ITO by performing such touchstones as Barber’s Adagio for Strings and Ravel’s La Valse, as well as selections from Star Wars, An American in Paris, and the song catalogue of Michael Jackson. He will also perform music from his brand new all-Bach recording, scheduled for release in June 2016 on Sony Classical.
A pre-show talk with Cameron Carpenter will take place at 7:00 PM.
