Virtuoso organist Cameron Carpenter brings his effortless technique and musical imagination to bear in a short recital program followed by a live improvised scoring of the 1920 silent horror film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Thought to be the first true horror film (and with a twist ending, no less), Caligari provides a perfectly macabre inspiration for Carpenter’s wicked musical gift. Carpenter’s second performance at the Mondavi Center also marks the long-anticipated debut of the portable, digital International Touring Organ. Built by digital organ wizards Marshall & Ogletree of Needham, MA, Carpenter spent the last decade designing the instrument to allow him to take his talents (and sound) to any venue in the world.
