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
