Travel Tip: Classical Music in England
Mahan Esfahani, harpsichord

Mahan Esfahani, harpsichord
LONDON  •  Wigmore Hall  •  Ongoing

Byrd, Bach, Ligeti

The Iranian-American keyboard player and scholar Mahan Esfahani, attracted worldwide attention in 2010 when he gave the first ever harpsichord recital at the BBC Proms; he returned to the 2012 festival with the Academy of Ancient Music to direct the world première performance of his arrangement of Bach’s The Art of Fugue.

Esfahani turns his mind to William Byrd’s keyboard miniatures, exploring the great English composer’s ingenuity and vibrant imagination in company with contrapuntal masterworks by Bach and Ligeti’s irresistible harpsichord compositions.
