Fit wie ein Turnschuh, exzentrisch wie Glenn Gould: Cameron Carpenter aus den USA hat das Format Orgelkonzert neu definiert. Und das liegt keineswegs nur an seinen exzentrischen Klamotten oder seiner High-Tech-Reiseorgel. Was ihn zur Punk-Ikone seiner Zunft gemacht hat, ist sein genialer Zugriff auf das Repertoire von Bach bis Pop.

effortless brilliance and jauntiness when playing Bach

Listening to Bach playing the organ was the greatest pleasure for his contemporaries. 30 years after his death they considered the technical demands of the music of their day to be mediocre in comparison to his incredibly difficult organ music. Nevertheless he managed to perform his works “with the greatest ease and bravura, as if they were only simple pieces”. The American organist Cameron Carpenter achieves the same effortless brilliance and jauntiness when playing Bach’s grandest works for an audience in the concert hall.

The performance lasts 60-70 minutes without an interval.
