Ten recitals in four days. More than 18 hours of music. More than 200 compositions written for the organ by Johann Sebastian Bach, all played by one determined young man.

"It's just one of these bizarre things organists do," says Donald Sutherland, coordinator of the organ department at the Peabody Institute, speaking about the rare Bach marathon planned this weekend by his star student.

The Bach Organ Marathon takes place at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday; 10 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sunday; and 7 p.m. Monday at Griswold Hall, Peabody Institute, 17 E. Mount Vernon Place. Tickets are $10 to $18 per concert (discounts for three or more concerts). Call 410-659-8100, ext. 2.
