The bayan (Russian: баян) is a type of chromatic button accordion developed in Russia.

Her works for bayan are De Profundis (1978); Seven Words (1982) for bayan, violoncello and strings; Et exspecto (1986), a sonata in five movements, Silenzio (1992) for bayan, violin and violoncello, In Croce (1992) for cello and bayan (originally written for cello and organ), and Zeitgestalten.
