Mahan Esfahani Harpsichord

Praised by The Times for his daring and fiery performances and by Opera Today as the leading harpsichordist of his generation, Mahan Esfahani was the first harpsichordist to be named a BBC New Generation Artist and to be awarded a fellowship prize by the Borletti-Buitoni Trust. In a virtuosic programme including five works by Girolamo Frescobaldi; Praeludium & Fuga in a-moll, BWV 904 by Johann Sebastian Bach; Sonata II in As, Wurttemberg by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Pieces en la-mineur (Nouvelles suites des pieces de clavecin) by Jean-Philippe Rameau, Mahan demonstrates why Early Music Today magazine accorded him the cover story and the title “King of the Keyboards” on the front cover of their December 2011-February 2012 issue.
