PAUL GOODMAN Posted July 3, 2009 Share Posted July 3, 2009 There has been some discussion here about Cameron Carpenter and the UK tour which was planned for summer of 2009. I can speak with a little authority as I planned and arranged all the tour venues. There were 11 in all and it is true that the whole thing has been cancelled by Cameron and his new Manager Richard Torrence. This has caused me and a great number of people a great deal of stress and in some cases anger. While I can still see some reason for the cancellation - Cameron has the opportunity to make a second recording for Telarc, I can also agree with those who think it is very poor judgement by Cameron's management to break "contracts" with these important venues. I have got to know Cameron quite well over the past year and wish to keep him as a friend so will not damn him as others have. The GOOD NEWS OUT OF THIS IS THAT ANOTHER BRILLIANT AMERICAN ORGANIST CALLED NATHAN LAUBE IS TAKING OVER 7 OUT OF THE 11 VENUES ORIGINALLY BOOKED FOR CAMERON. I would ask members to have a look at Nathan's webisite at www.nathanlaube.com as this gives information about the tour and his playing - which is stunning, but the tour dates are as follows: Monday 17th August - All Souls Langham Place - 7.30pm Wednesday 19th August - Exeter Cathedral - 8pm Friday 21st August - Great Torrington Parish Church Devon - 7.30pm Saturday 22nd August - Truro Cathedral - 7.30pm Wednesday 26th August - Christchurch Priory - 7.30pm Saturday 29th August - Canterbury Cathedral - 7.30pm Saturday 5th September - Nichols Nymet House, North Tawton Devon - 7pm Further details also at organrecitals.com There may even be time to squeeze in one or two other engagements and if anyone is interested they should contact me here or at email@example.com I do hope people will support Nathan and give him the recognition he deserves in the UK.
