Playing with care and passion, Nathan’s performances are both awe-filled and stirring. At the same time, he can use the organ in ways that are playful, matching the music to the occasion. For us, he offered an education in the moods, registers, and talents of the organ—sounds that we had never before thought possible of our too familiar instrument—in just one concert. In an era where fine organists are increasingly hard to find, Nathan is a rare jewel.

Nathan exploited nearly every resource that is found on the large instrument at Central Baptist. The fiery Toccatas that began and ended his program were delicately balanced with the gentle and soothing sounds of Handel, Sowerby and Dubois. Nathan’s program was well thought out, well prepared and greatly appreciated by the audience.
