CAMERON CARPENTER FEATURING THE INTERNATIONAL TOURING ORGAN
A Chamber Music Series Special Concert
at the Jacobs Music Center
Cameron Carpenter, organ
Iconoclastic organist Cameron Carpenter is returning to Copley Symphony Hall! His repertoire – from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, his original works and hundreds of transcriptions and arrangements – is probably the most diverse of any organist working today. A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, Mr. Carpenter’s approach to the organ is smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music while generating a level of acclaim, exposure and controversy unprecedented for an organist.
For this return visit, Mr. Carpenter is bringing his International Touring Organ, an instrument he himself designed. This unique instrument, which will fill the stage of Copley Symphony Hall, allows Mr. Carpenter to perform on the same equipment regardless of where he is engaged for a concert. Organ manufacturer Marshall & Ogletree has sampled sounds from many traditional pipe organs – including many of Mr. Cameron’s favorite instruments – from the cathedral to the Wurlitzer. These come together in an organ designed not for size, limitless variety or to model any particular pipe organ, but rather to make a great organ internationally mobile – an idea impractical or impossible by other means.
Come enjoy a one-of-a-kind aural and visual experience as Cameron Carpenter fills Copley Symphony Hall with music by Richard Wagner, Astor Piazzolla, George Gershwin, Alexander Scriabin, Henry Mancini and, of course, J.S. Bach. You've never seen or heard anything like this!
