Ken Cowan is Associate Professor and head of the organ program at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music in Houston, Texas.
“KEN COWAN SHOWS OFF THE ORCHESTRAL SOUNDS OF NEW ORGAN AT HIGHLAND PARK UNITED METHODIST CHURCH”
“Cowan was at his most dazzling in transcriptions of Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture and Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz No. 1. Sounds shifted, swelled and diminished in apparently limitless variety, all while Cowan dispatched dizzying arrays of notes.”
Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News
“It is difficult to find enough adjectives to describe Ken Cowan’s playing. He is simply one of the best anywhere!”
“Mr. Cowan’s technical mastery, expressivity, musicality, and sheer brilliance thrilled the convention audience.”
