PHOTOS: Cameron Carpenter Debuts His International Touring Organ with Shostakovich, Fauré at Town Hall in New York City
Last week, Classicalite took a stroll on Town Hall Way in Midtown, Manhattan to witness celebrated organ virtuoso Cameron Carpenter in-person--touring in support of his Sony Classical debut If You Could Read My Mind (a record that quickly became the top-selling classical album in the United States).
Back in the States from Berlin, Carpenter ecently completed his custom-built, $1,000,000 International Touring Organ (ITO) and we wanted to catch the sound firsthand.
Shostakovich's Festive Overture and CC's take on Gabriel Fauré's composition were our favorites. Take a look through some of favorite visuals...there were plenty with an organist like Cameron.
