Cameron Carpenter, Organ
The first of two matinee appearances by the
flamboyantly postmodern, genre-bending artist,
equally at home on a Hammond, a Wurlitzer,
a software-reliant virtual pipe organ or a
monumental acoustic instrument. Cameron
Carpenter made his UK solo debut at the
Royal Albert Hall in 2008. His set then included
an improvised sonata based on great British
television themes. In his two consecutive
afternoon concerts he concentrates on
J. S. Bach, combining original works with
transgressive transformations, not
forgetting his own improvisational tribute to
the master.
