Notes & Reviews:

Second album recorded by Grammy® nominated organist Cameron Carpenter on his International Touring Organ (ITO). Designed by Carpenter himself, the ITO is a mobile digital organ that is artistically and sonically equal to any of the world's great organs. Carpenter's first album of entirely Bach repertoire.

Sony Classical is pleased to announce the second solo album by exceptional young American organist, Cameron Carpenter, All You Need is Bach. Bach's great keyboard masterpieces provide an ideal platform for Carpenter's formidable creative gifts and the seemingly limitless possibilities of his dream instrument - his signature International Touring Organ. The album takes is cue from The Beatles' classic "All You Need is Love", where Bach's Invention No. 8 in F major proudly rises out of the coda's collage-like texture. Works include Contrapunctus IX from The Art of Fugue, Organ Sonatas in D minor and E-flat major, Prelude and Fugue in B minor, Invention No. 8 and, as the centerpiece, the great Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. The latter holds a special place in Carpenter's affections. "It is undoubtedly one of the Top 10 masterworks of all music, no matter how you evaluate it." A virtuoso composer-performer unique among organists, Cameron Carpenter's approach is to smash the stereotypes of organists and organ music. Described as "extravagantly talented" (New York Times), and "smasher of cultural and classical music taboos," (The New Yorker), Cameron is the first organist ever nominated for a Grammy Award® for his debut album, Revolutionary. All You Need is Bach is the second recording made on Cameron's new International Touring Organ. The organ, designed by Cameron himself, is a mobile digital organ that is artistically and sonically equal to any of the world's great organs and will challenge the way the world thinks about organs.
