About

Under Mahan Esfahani’s hands – and occasionally fists – the harpsichord is transmogrified into an elemental force, by turns supported or menaced by an astonishing arsenal of electronics. Concerned listeners please note: no harpsichords were harmed in the making of this album.

‘Esfahani perfectly understands the toccatas’ architecture, yet celebrates their quirkiness and, interrogating every note, is generous with expressive pauses’ – BBC Music Magazine (JS Bach - Toccatas, CDA68244)

‘Robust, vital and exciting’ – Gramophone (The Passinge Mesures, CDA68249)

‘These works have sometimes been handled as trifles or decorative miniatures, but Iranian-American harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani treats them as profoundly expressive and introspective works’ – BBC Music Magazine (The Passinge Mesures, CDA68249)
