‘A superstar whose musicianship, imagination, virtuosity, cultural breadth and charisma far transcend the ivory tower in which the harpsichord has traditionally been placed.’ THE TIMES
If you think you don’t like the harpsichord, then you haven’t heard Mahan Esfahani. Passionate yet cerebral, the Iranian-American has won many awards and won over many converts to the instrument. Music by Steve Reich and Kevin Volans contrasts with the full range of Bach’s invention in dance suites and virtuosic toccatas.
6.30 – 7.00pm Pre-concert talk with Mahan Esfahani
