"One of the most talented organists in the world."

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"BEST OF THE BEST"

“Having heard previous recitals and recordings by this amazing young artist, I knew that his performance here would be spectacular, and it was all that and more. His virtuosity is evident in all the most difficult repertoire, and his inner soul emerges in his sensitive handling of lyrical phrases. It is thrilling to observe Adam’s ascendancy among the “best of the best” organists.”

LAWRENCE P. SCHREIBER

"ABSOLUTE ORGAN PRODIGY"

"An absolute organ prodigy with the technique and virtuosity that most concert pianists could only dream of.... The Franz Liszt of the Organ."

NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO

"SPELLBINDING VIRTUOSITY"

"Spellbinding virtuosity, keen sense for phrasing and line, superb rhythmic control, contrapuntal and linear clarity, and a fine sense of color. He is highly capable of communicative lyricism, a sure grasp of musical structure and counterpoint, and incendiary virtuosity."

THE AMERICAN ORGANIST

"OUTSTANDING TALENT"

"One of his country’s outstanding talents in classical organ music...not just possessing virtuosity, but a mature empathy remarkable in so young a performer"

He has an all-consuming ability to communicate the essence of every piece he plays. He is like those greats before him -- a force to be reckoned with. Make no mistake -- this young man will surely have a most distinguished career.”

"PHENOMENALLY PLAYED"

"A young man with a phenomenal talent...His G Major Prelude and Fugue BWV 541 ...beautifully played, and the Liszt piano transcription was absolutely phenomenally played."

THE LITCHFIELD REVIEW (UK)
