The Piano


Jon Persson plays a wide variety of styles on the piano, ranging from classical (Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and Debussy, just to name a few) to pop favorites from the 20’s through the 90’s;  Broadway show tunes, French, Italian, German and Viennese songs, and Latin tangos, as well as avant-garde tangos by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla.

The Russian Bayan/БАЯН

The Russian cousin of the piano-accordion and chromatic-accordion is the bayan.  This is an amazingly complex and powerful creation, capable of producing an astonishing variety of sounds. A very versatile instrument, capable of interpreting jazz, Broadway, Russian gypsy, traditional Argentine tangos, as well as avant-garde tangos by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, Baroque and Romantic classics by the Great Masters, and much more.
