About the Event
Bach Toccata in E minor, BWV 914
Bach Partita V in G Major, BWV 829
Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV998
Bach’s Goldberg Variations were supposedly written to ease the nights of an insomniac diplomat! They are in fact among the most thrilling and virtuosic sets of variations ever written and Iranian harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani is one of the great charismatic classical performers of today. A treasurable evening of unforgettable music by Bach.
‘As for virtuoso flair, even Liszt would doff the cap at Esfahani’s furious arpeggios and decorative flourishes, fingers flying at the speed of light’ THE TIMES
