Cameron Carpenter

Fit as a fiddle, eccentric as Glenn Gould: Cameron Carpenter from the USA has redefined the organ concert format. And that is by no means only due to his eccentric clothes or his high-tech travelling organ. What has made him a punk icon of his guild is his ingenious approach to the repertoire from Bach to pop.

An American style cruise

This is not how the wealthy American Rollo Treadway imagined his honeymoon voyage to Honolulu. The ocean liner “Navigator” is floating in the Pacific. No crew, no passengers, only Rollo and his bride are on board. From breakfast to anchoring, the two of them have to do everything themselves and in the end save their skin from cannibals. Only Buster Keaton could come up with such extravagant nonsense for his 1924 silent film classic. Cameron Carpenter plays the organ score he came up with earlier this year. An American style cruise.
