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.
