Bramwell Tovey, conductor
Cameron Carpenter, organ**
BARBER Toccata Festiva
Terry RILEY At the Royal Majestic, for organ and orchestra
ELGAR Enigma Variations

English conductor Bramwell Tovey is joined by virtuoso American organist Cameron Carpenter, who makes his BSO subscription series debut in a work written for him, At the Royal Majestic, by the innovative American composer Terry Riley, a founding father of musical minimalism. Himself an organist, Riley created this eclectic large-scale concerto “shifting, as its title suggests, from sounds reminiscent of the Mighty Wurlitzer housed in the grand movie palaces, to fragments of Calliope, Baroque Chorales, occasional craggy dissonance of clashing pipes, and boogie.” To open the concert, Carpenter is soloist in Samuel Barber’s 1960 organ-and-orchestra work Toccata Festiva, by turns exuberant and lyrical. The English composer Edward Elgar’s tour-de-force of orchestral and expressive imagination, the Enigma Variations, is a series of widely varied portraits of his friends achieved via transformations of a common musical theme.
