 Mahan Esfahani harpsichord
   


 Hailed by Opera Today as ‘the leading harpsichordist of his generation’, Mahan Esfahani attracted worldwide attention in 2010 when he gave the first ever harpsichord recital at the BBC Proms. Dedicated to taking his instrument beyond the realm of ‘early music’, the critically acclaimed Iranian-American harpsichordist works with repertoire that spans four centuries.

 
For this recital he turned his mind to Byrd’s keyboard miniatures, exploring the works’ vibrant ingenuity in company with the rich masterworks of Bach and the irresistible and fascinating compositions of Ligeti.

                Performance *****          Recording *****

"... Esfahani marches and dances, sings, swaggers and prays ... His two harpsichords glimmer radiantly in the Wigmore’s fine acoustic."

Kate Bolton - BBC Music magazine - August 2014


                     Editor’s Choice - Instrumental

"... The full-bodied engineering conveys both instrument and venue in a natural and attractive ambient blend. Highly recommended..."

Jed Distler - Gramophone magazine - June 2014


"... this music is more than interesting, and no composer could ask for more committed or entralling accounts than these. The recording quality, live from the Wigmore hall, is good and very clear ... this is a recording of great distinction."

Robert Matthew-Walker - International Record Review - May 2014
