Alexander Sevastian is one of the world’s greatest accordionists. At his visit to La Fête de la musique de Tremblant last month he was cheered repeatedly by an audience won over by his virtuosity, his exhilarating playing and his contagious enthusiasm. Today Analekta is proud to announce the appearance of his new album, J.S. Bach: Famous Works.

In presenting transcriptions for accordion of a number of Johann Sebastian Bach’s masterworks, the album allows us to rediscover and enjoy the music of that great master of the baroque period in a different light. The pieces chosen by accordionist Alexander Sevastian make up a selection in which a certain dramatic character prevails, one that permeates the Chaconne and such major works for organ as the Prelude and Fugue In A minor, the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor and the renowned Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

The program, balanced by the lightness of the Badinerie from the Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor and by the more meditative atmosphere of the Air on a G String (from the Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major) as well as the chorale cantata in F minor Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, showcases both the profundity and virtuosity of the artist.
