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

Russian virtuoso pianist Denis Matsuev returns to the United States as part of a massive worldwide tour through Europe, Asia, Israel and beyond. The pianist received critical acclaim for his sold-out Carnegie Hall recital in early 2010 — an evening about which The New York Times noted, “he superbly offered a primal performance … [the] atmosphere was electric.” Known for his breathtaking virtuosity and clear artistic identity, Matsuev is one of the most sought-after pianists on the international concert stage and has performed with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berliner Philharmoniker with Valery Gergiev, The London Symphony Orchestra with Semyon Bychkov and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Leonard Slatkin. For his appearance at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, Matsuev will perform a program of works by Schubert, Beethoven, Grieg and Stravinsky.
This event is not recommended for children under 5 years of age.
