The “extravagantly talented” (The New York Times) American organist Cameron Carpenter releases his first album on Decca Gold, a recording of J.S. Bach’s The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 juxtaposed with his own transcription of American composer Howard Hanson’s Symphony No. 2 in D-flat Major, Opus 30, W45, "Romantic." Both works are performed on Carpenter’s tailor-made instrument, the International Touring Organ, which was designed to allow him to perform at almost any location worldwide.
