“Carpenter is one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument… He is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos. He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… And, most important of all, the most musical.” - Los Angeles Times

 

At the Ponchielli Theater in Cremona, the legendary organist Cameron Carpenter will delight us with a very personal and very complicated version of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations which, under his hands and especially his feet, will be transfigured into an unprecedented orchestral fresco.

Carpenter will play a 1902 Mutin-Cavaille Coll Organ, a magical name for lovers of the instrument, if we think of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, restored for the occasion by the famous Organ Factory of Comm. Giovanni Tamburini of Crema.
