star 1star 2star 3star 4

March 12, 2016

Together longer than The Beatles themselves, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary group, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. Includes the early hits to later classics that The Beatles never got the chance to play live - including the most complex and challenging songs.

Cameron Carpenter

April 4, 2016

Homegrown organist Carpenter isn't your ballpark standard organ grinder; this guy is a true virtuoso of the medium, combining showmanship and technique that leaves people with dropped jaws. At the tender age of 33, he is one of the youngest experts in his art anywhere in the world. Often touring with a specially made electronic organ, 2014 saw him release DVD If You Could Read My Mind, containing performances and commentary by him recorded on the very same electronic organ.
