Organist Cameron Carpenter's flashy technique and flamboyant, iconoclastic style have earned him international fame and comparisons to Liberace. While Carpenter is a natural showman, his instrumental prowess goes well beyond tricks. He's the first organist ever to receive a Grammy nomination in the Best Solo Instrumental Performance category. Carpenter's repertoire ranges from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, original works and transcriptions of jazz and pop classics. A Juilliard graduate, Carpenter is currently the world's most famous organist, and his star is continuing to rise. Learn More

The sounds of South America come alive in this engaging multimedia presentation. Experience music inspired by the countries of the Inca trail together with breathtaking photos of the region and its people.
Works included on the program are the famous Peruvian folk song El condor pasa; Osvaldo Golijov’s Maríel for Cello and Orchestra, performed by cellist David Requiro; Jimmy López’s Fiesta!; and Gabriela Lena Frank’s Illapa, Tone Poem for Flute and Orchestra, performed by Donna Shin.
After years of collecting South American music from private homes, museums and libraries, conductor and Peru native Miguel Harth-Bedoya launched the Caminos del Inka project in order to give this exceptional music new life. “It is an effort,” he says, “to unearth forgotten musical gems, mix them with classical ones, and commission new music from these countries, thereby bringing new repertoire and new sounds to the concert hall.”
Caminos del Inka is the first concert in the 2010–2011 Around the World Series, a new programming initiative designed to explore in depth the music and culture of different regions across the globe.
