Home listening: magnificent Schütz and all things theorbo  The Guardian

• Among the neglected figures of the musical past, one of the greatest is the 17th-century German composer Heinrich Schütz. He is often portrayed as a somewhat severe figure who lived through the horrors of the thirty years’ war and wrote austere Passion settings that foreshadowed Bach. But the music he composed over his remarkable 87-year life is full of vivid colour and invention, some of it learned in Italy, much of it born of his own powerfully spiritual response to the texts he set. There are big polychoral motets, which were memorably revived at the very beginning of the early music m...

Both have busy schedules, as well as distinction for musically daring performances. It is not often that the brothers are in the same country at the same time, but this year they are home in Israel together for three...

Mahan Esfahani: ‘The harpsichord is like the posh, pretty boy in prison’  The Guardian

Mahan Esfahani was nine when he first heard a harpsichord. He and his parents were visiting Iran, the country where he was born, and which his family had left for the US five years before. “An uncle gave me a bunch of cassettes,” he says. “One was of Karl Richter [the German conductor and harpsichordist] playing Bach. Well, I listened to it, and I thought: ‘This is what I’ve got to do.’ I don’t mean in terms of a career. I just thought my life would be well spent in the company of this instrument. I thought I would get a profession, which is what every Iranian parent wants for their child, ...
