The Modern Man: Mahan Esfahani

The Modern Man: Mahan Esfahani
28 Nov 2018
Victoria Concert Hall

“Such virtuosity and disarming presentation suggests that Esfahani could inspire a whole new appreciation of the instrument” – The Guardian

Making his Singapore debut is BBC Music Magazine Award-winning Mahan Esfahani – quite simply the most sought after harpsichordist in the world today. With his great stylistic understanding and an animated passion for music past and present, this concert stops at nothing short of harpsichord brilliance.
