Mahan Esfahani releases the next installment in his Bach series. With couplings including a compelling rendition of the Capriccio “on the departure of his beloved brother” and performances offering a rare blend of interpretative exuberance and scholarly insight, harpsichord playing really doesn’t get any more exciting than this. Esfahani again highlights the radicalism, virtuosity—and sheer joyousness—of the works recorded here, both in his playing and in his engaging booklet notes.
