Westminster Concert Organ Series presents Adam Brakel
The spell-binding performances of Adam J. Brakel have led to his being compared to Liszt, Gould, Bernstein, and Paganini. National Public Radio in Florida hailed him as, “An absolute organ prodigy, with the technique and virtuosity that most concert pianists could only dream of. He is the Franz Liszt of the organ.” He enjoys a highly successful concert career, playing from coast to coast in the United States and in concert tours in England, Germany, and Hong Kong. Brakel’s repertoire of organ literature is extensive and includes the complete organ works of Bach, Bruhns, Buxtehude, Couperin, Liszt, Franck, Mendelssohn, Duruflé, and Franck. Mr. Brakel has also made a concentrated study of jazz music for the pipe organ and has premiered an arrangement of celebrated jazz pianist Dick Hyman’s Shenandoah and Millennial Countdown.
