Gotham Harpsichord is pleased to present the New York debut recital of Mr. Mahan Esfahani.
Winning wide acclaim for his musical sensitivity and his technical prowess, the Tehran-born harpsichordist and organist enjoys an active career as a soloist and collaborative musician and has appeared on many leading series and venues in the United States and in Europe.
Praised for his 'clarity and poise' (The Washington Post), he has recently entered into an agreement with the Musica Omnia label to – in partnership with Australian harpsichordist Peter Watchorn – record the complete works for harpsichord, virginals, and organ of the English Virginalist composer John Bull (1562-1628), the 'Liszt of the harpsichord.'
Mr. Esfahani will present virtuoso works for the harpsichord by Rameau, Scarlatti, and J.S. Bach on an instrument by William Dowd, formerly in the collection of the late concert pianist Rosalyn Tureck.
Featuring a rising presence on the Early Music scene, this is an event not to be missed.
