“Bach’s music is very often mesmerizing. It’s very rarely this fun.”
– Neil Fisher, The Times
Mahan Esfahani has made his life’s mission to return the harpsichord to the mainstream of concert instruments, and to that end his creative programming and commissioning of new works have drawn the attention of critics and audiences across Europe, Asia, and North America. He will play an intriguing program of music spanning five centuries. Included are dances of Thomas Tompkins, J.S. Bach’s Italian Concerto, sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti, and harpsichord and electronics music of Anahita Abbasi.
Winner of many prestigious awards and sought after internationally, Esfahani became the youngest recipient of the Wigmore Medal, in recognition of his significant contribution and longstanding relationship with the Hall in London.
