“Marko Petričić’s amazing solo in a piece from Bach’s formidable oeuvre for pipe organ – Prelude and Fugue in A minor – was as much of a treat as the trios on the program title. The distinct voices in the fugue were acutely balanced and well proportioned, and the sonority built impressively to the octave passage that led up to the broadened final measures”.

“His interpretation of the No. 1 Sonata by French composer Guilmant dazzled the audience – many of whom were standing, as there were not enough seats for all those who wished to attend this feast of organ playing. Experts especially noted the diversity of dynamic nuances and bauty of musical colours that Petričić produced in the sonata”.
