Video of the day: Mahan Esfahani on Bach's Toccatas

Gramophone Wed 17th July 2019

Esfahani discusses his latest recording for Hyperion: 'I think musicians who avoid Bach basically lack humility'

In the August issue of Gramophone, Richard Bratby speaks to Mahan Esfahani about Bach's seven keyboard toccatas (BWV910-916) and they discuss how he has approached recording these seven pieces for which no complete manuscript survives. 

Esfahani's new recording of the toccatas will be released by Hyperion Records on August 2, and in the video below Esfahani shines a light on the recording process and the debt that he owes to the recording's producer Sébastien Chonion and engineer David Hinitt.
