Reviews:

The Observer

"Esfahani, who explains their complex history in a detailed essay, has made his own new performing edition and reveals these familiar pieces to have mysteries we may never have suspected."

Classical Source

4 Stars

"Esfahani rightly draws contrasts in tempo, register, and character between one section and the next to bring these works to life."
