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.
On Monday Carpenter played in the Philharmonie and what he did there was so disconcerting that it could probably only be compared to what Liszt must have evoked 170 years ago.
Extravagantly talented… the audience’s response was raucous… everything he touches turns fantastical and memorable …
A young superstar … Flamboyant presentation goes hand in hand with unquestioned virtuosity.
