Mahan Esfahani (harpsichord)

Programme:
J. S. Bach – Goldberg Variations

Since making his debut in 2009, Mahan Esfahani has worked tirelessly to bring the harpsichord to mainstream concert life and to gain a new relevance for the instrument through a busy recital schedule and performances with such ensembles as the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Concerto Köln, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. His richly-varied discography includes two albums for Deutsche Grammophon: 'Time Present and Time Past,' which garnered a 'Choc de Classica' in France, and Bach's 'Goldberg' Variations, which was released in August 2016 to praise from the British and foreign press, most notably being named to the long list for the Preis der DeutschenSchallplattenkritik. Nicholas Kenyon in the Guardian stated that “Everyone wants to record Bach’s Goldbergs, but not many show as much piercing insight as harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani.”
