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 Musically Speaking series is a great way to understand the background of both popular, and lesser known, classical music pieces. Each of the two pieces was prefaced with a casual yet informative commentary from the conductor's podium, complete with snippets of the performance (from the full orchestra, live) that illustrated the conductor's musical points. And the performances themselves -- especially the Schumann -- were spectacular.
While the matinee time seems to appeal to a predominantly older audience, the Seattle Symphony's Musically Speaking performances would be appropriate to classical music lovers of any age.
