Domestic music-making of a distinctly superior sort is lovingly recreated in a rare recording of the notebooks Bach presented to his second wife.

The famous music book was gifted by Johann Sebastian Bach to his wife, who noted down pieces composed by Bach and others.

Award-winning harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani and renowned soprano Carolyn Sampson perform these works.

Since making his London debut in 2009, Mahan Esfahani has established himself as the first harpsichordist in a generation whose work spans virtually all areas of classical music-making, from critically acclaimed performances and recordings of standard repertoire to working with the leading composers of the day and pioneering concerto appearances with major symphony orchestras on four continents.

He was the first and only harpsichordist to be a BBC New Generation Artist (2008-2010), a Borletti-Buitoni prize winner (2009), a nominee for Gramophone's Artist of the Year (2014, 2015 and 2017) and on the shortlist as Instrumentalist of the Year for the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards (2013 and 2019).

"at its pungent best, Esfahani's joie de vivre can be uniquely captivating."  – BBC Music Magazine
