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

This was a terrific performance. The first half of the program had to be changed because the solo cellist was unable to get to the US from Europe due to the volcano in Iceland. The guest conductor was also different for the same reason. Remarkably, the substitutions were excellent.
I took my boyfriend who is a classical music novice and the he found the commentary they provide on the Sunday matinees very helpful. I would recommend this series to anyone interested in learning more about what to listen for.
Roberto Abbado conducts the Seattle Symphony and cellist Xavier Phillips. The program will feature Hector Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture, Henri Dutilleux’s Tout un monde lointain (A Whole Distant World) for Cello and Orchestra, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67.
