    If he'd be born and raised NOT in the U.S. he would sound a LOT better! 😛

    NOT IMPRESSED!!!! 1:Noisy! 2:Speeds up, then slows down! 3:Sound quality is like it was recorded using a 1970s cassette recorder! I could go on… He needs to have Rachel Flowers teach him HOW TO DO IT RIGHT!!!!

    I hope someone got a better recording than this. He was quite something then and he's so much more today. Quite a man.

    Can't help but think he has a lot he could learn from just listening to ELP's cover of this.

    Cameron Carpenter plays what he called "The Wall" where he first met the instrument that would test and hone his craft and talent while he studied performance.  Of course, folks, its an Aeolian-Skinner.  What else?  Cameron goes for his version of what Jean Guillou already had done and recorded.  Great!

    I don't know what it is but even at the mention of your name, it takes my breath away.  When you play… I start crying.  Bach, Chopin or Sousa, it doesn't make any difference.  I suspect the world hasn't experienced anything quite like you since Liszt or Chopin walked on earth.   My highest regards.   Sent with love.  CVD

    things made for the piano should stay that way. They were composed on it for a reason. The reason being that it sounds most beautiful on the piano and as such I very much dislike this. It is ridiculous to try and pull emotion and dynamic out of an organ.

    Cameron and his artful playing is magnificent. The M&O organ doesn't represent a classical quality pipe organ sound to me. The Thigpen mechanical woofers are a hoot.He probably taught some of his professsors at Juliard a few things about organ performance.Yes Cameron is a genius.

    Magnificent rendition of Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky. For those critics here that don't know, this music was not composed by the organist Cameron Carpenter. I have this piece in two versions, the classical recorded by the NY Philharmonic, conducted by Zubin Mehta, and my favorite one, the heavy rock version by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

    Bunch of sour grapes here.  Like to see you morons do half of what he does.   You'd have to get on a ladder 200 ft tall just to get high enough to kiss Cameron's ass.  Let's see you post your versions to show us how its done.

    Proves you can be a virtuoso and have horrible taste.  Someone make him program computers or something.  Just stop the noise pollution.

    My laptop does no justice to what the pipes are really offering as a gift to my (your) ears. Well done.

    I'm bitching about the disrespect of the audience and the never ending homily by the music director. Heck, man, Carpenter didn't even get to finish. Legitimate gripes and I hope there are more to come. Buy all the Carpenter you can. I do. and Alain, Koopman, Fagius, M. Murray, T. Murray, Huford, Gillou, Crozier and the rest. Hooray for the King Of Instruments. Go to blazes, Bad audience.

    Supreme performance by the angel of the pipe organ and an audience that coughs and hacks its head off, sniffles like it has the Asian Flue, whispers likes its at a gossipfest and stirs likes its got terminal itch. And, yes, I even heard someone talking on the cell phone. What, are they having brunch after the cricket match back there? They didn't even let him finish Mussorgsky's best work. No respect at all. Not even for the soul of Virgil Fox. What a damnable waste!

    So this is where Virgil Fox's sould went. the only other full organ transcription of "Pictures" is by Jean Guillou who is also an incredible virtuoso. Of course, I won't forget Keith Emerson's contribution, though he needed Greg Lake and Carl Palmer and Royal Albert Hall organ.

    If he was playing like it was wrote, he'd be playing on a piano as that is what it was "originally" for.

    If they turn off all the electronic "stuff" that makes "noise." they should turn off the M&O "organ." To me, the silence would be golden.
