Mahan Esfahani, Harpsichord

March 21 @ 8:30 pm

| $25
Mahan

Iranian-American harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani regularly performs across the globe, challenging audiences’ perceptions about the capabilities of the harpsichord and its relevance to classical and contemporary music today. Known for his great diversity of repertoire, Mr. Esfahani brings a program which incorporates music of the English Renaissance as well as Steve Reich and Kaija Saariaho to his 92nd Street Y debut performance. Mr. Esfahani’s revolutionary philosophies about the harpsichord prompted him to become the first harpsichordist in history named a BBC New Generation Artist, and to receive a Borletti-Buitoni Trust award; in 2015, he was named Newcomer of the Year by BBC Music Magazine, and he is described by The Times as, “a superstar whose musicianship, imagination, cultural breadth and charisma far transcends the ivory tower in which the harpsichord has traditionally been placed.”
