Smashing stereotypes. Worldwide acclaim. Complete diversity. Staggering talent.

Cameron Carpenter is a game-changer. His approach to the organ is to smash stereotypes while generating a level of acclaim, exposure and sometimes controversy unprecedented for an organist. Accompanied by his trusted International Touring Organ, and under the baton of Alexander Shelley, Cameron performs Rachmaninoff’s melodic and widely popular Rhapsody on a Theme from Paganini. Adapted for the organ, it is truly spectacular!

Accompanied by works from Edward Elgar and Richard Strauss, the evening looks to explore remarkably different impressions from remarkably different composers, all of whom were inspired by Italy’s musical culture and natural beauty.

And join us pre-concert for a Pre-Concert Talk with Pauls Wells and the artists.

Enjoy in the newly renovated Southam Hall. Better Seats. Better Sound. Better Access.
