Fancy Footwork by an Organist

Posted at 12:12 PM on July 20, 2007 by Rex Levang
Filed under: Frederic Chopin

If you check out this video of a July 5 recital by pipe organ phenom Cameron Carpenter, you'll see:

1) more of the soloist than you often get to see at an organ recital
2) some amazing footwork in the first piece (a transcription of Chopin's "Revolutionary" Etude)
3) a refreshing alternative to the usual classical-music-soloist garb.
