Q2 Music Presents: Cameron Carpenter

Friday, April 20, 2012

7:00 PM

The virtuosic composer-organist and YouTube sensation Cameron Carpenter joins host Terrance McKnight for a kaleidoscopic tour through the beautiful and diverse repertoire for organ, from legendary works by Johann Sebastian Bach to adaptations of Charles Ives and Percy Grainger to Carpenter's original compositions and arrangements of songs by George Gershwin and Leonard Cohen.

 In his exclusive New York recital this season, Carpenter provides a high-octane embarrassment of riches, all performed on a new cutting-edge digital organ by a commanding musician dubbed a "force of nature" by Alex Ross of The New Yorker and an "ambitious radical who plays with unrelenting scope, vigor and imagination" by The Advocate.
