* Required Fields

Doubly rooted in French and German culture, Frank Martin, a "preacher's kid" from Geneva, begin closely studying Bach's works during his early youth. Martin became acquainted with the famous 'Passacaglia in C minor'. It was easy for him to write a Passacaille of his own for organ in 1944 at the request of the Bern organist Kurt Wolfgang Senn. Martin was also familiar with the harpsichord from his studies of early music. He wanted to situate this baroque instrument revived in the twentieth century in a more modern context and did so in the Concerto for Harpsichord and Small Orchestra.
