Prince Bariatinsky’s Organ

Whilst transcribing some entries from the account books of Theodore Gwinnett, a Cheltenham solicitor,  I came across the following, dated 1809 April 26:

“Paid coachfare in London at different times to Portland Place, etc., making enquiries after Lord Kensington and others and also to Mr Frost, etc., respecting Prince Bariatinsky’s organ.”

Who was Prince Bariatinsky and what or where was his organ?  Does anyone know?
