Mahan Esfahani harpsichord

Bach Goldberg Variations BWV 988 78'

'Everyone wants to record Bach's Goldbergs, but not many show as much piercing insight as harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani.'
Guardian

Bach's fascinatingly multi-layered Goldberg Variations were reputedly written for harpsichord prodigy Johann Gottlieb Goldberg to play, sending his insomniac employer off to sleep. Almost hypnotic in its endless invention, this performance by Esfahani follows his critically acclaimed recording of the work for Deutsche Grammophon in 2017.
