Mahan Esfahani again highlights the radicalism, virtuosity—and sheer joyousness—of the works recorded here, both in his playing and in his uncommonly engaging booklet notes.

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
