Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Composer and organist Carson Cooman (b. 1982) has written works ranging from solo instrumental pieces to operas and from orchestral works to hymn tunes. As a concert organist, he specializes in the performance of new music with more than 130 new works having been written for him. The Minister of Music and Organist at Old South Church, Harry Lyn Huff performs some of Cooman's works for organ on this recording.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
These organ pieces by Carson Cooman, from 2001-2010, certainly use the full resources of the instrument. The Toccata-Fantasy on a Medieval Welsh Carol is rather bombastic and unwieldy. Trio: in Memoriam Dirk Flentrop is a tender memorial to the well-known Dutch organ builder. Exaltations is a three-movement work inspired by biblical passages. Much of the program will appeal mainly to organists. The more active sections tend to be overburdened and muddled, though the quiet moments are sometimes quite beautiful. It seems the composer's intent was, often, to show how loudly and how fast an organ (and organist) can play.
