Biography: A star among young classical musicians, concert organist Nathan J. Laube has quickly earned a place among the organ world's elite performers. His brilliant playing and gracious demeanor have thrilled audiences and presenters across the United States and in Europe, and his creative programming of repertoire spanning five centuries, including his own virtuoso transcriptions of orchestral works, have earned high praise from critics and peers alike.
"Laube painted a movement from Messiaen's La Nativité du seigneur with all the colors of the stained glass window on which the piece was inspired...this performance paid appropriate homage to this great composer..."
-Everything Alabama, November 2008
"...his traversal of Bach's G minor Fantasia and Fugue in G...cemented his artistry most permanently...Laube was indefatigable in his efforts to untangle Bach's counterpoint."
-Time Out Chicago, August 2007
