Marko Petričić, organ and bayan
Modeled after the German Lutheran Mass, the third volume of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Clavier-Übung (“Keyboard Practice”) consists of the larger chorale settings that include the pedal, and
also the smaller settings that are written for manuals only. The smaller settings have been played on the organ and other keyboard instruments, but never before on the bayan. Since the texture does not call for specific stops and colors on separate solo manuals, these pieces work very well on the bayan, with the added expressive power of the bellows and dynamic nuance.
