- Mahan Esfahani (Harpsichord)
Notes & Reviews:
Harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani approaches one of the greatest masterpieces of the Baroque repertoire with fresh eyes: Bach's Goldberg Variations. This album follows Esfahani's debut release on Deutsche Grammophon, which was described as "Exhaustingly brilliant" in The New York Times.
The Guardian, 18th September 2016
Everyone wants to record Bach's Goldbergs, but not many show as much piercing insight as harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani...Esfahani shows amazing rhythmic freedom at times, sometimes teasing us with a long pause before a repeat starts...A hugely stimulating account of one of the peaks of western music.
Recording information: Cologne, Deutschlandfunk Kammermusiksaal (04/2016).
