The 21st century’s leading champion of the harpsichord joins Britten Sinfonia to perform a complete cycle of Bach’s keyboard concertos alongside music by Bach’s contemporaries and forebears.
Ahead of recording Bach's complete keyboard concertos, Britten Sinfonia and Mahan Esfahani perform two of the most exciting in a concert which also features music by Bach's cousin Johann Bernard and a composer from the previous generation, Johann Rosenmüller.
Mahan Esfahani has been hailed as one of the most remarkable harpsichordists and 'controversial artists' of his generation, pushing against boundaries to become the first and only harpsichordist to be a BBC New Generation Artist (2008-2010), and most recently, the winner of the 2022 Wigmore Hall Prize for contributions to the classical music field.
“A performance by Esfahani would be something to treasure.”– Anna Picard, The Times.
This event will tour to Saffron Hall and Wigmore Hall.
Tickets for Wigmore Hall will be available soon.
