“Weekend at the Cafe Zimmerman” - Concert I
Saturday, June 30, 2018
Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Stimulation for the mind, nourishment for the soul… This four-concert series in the breathtaking surroundings of Syde Manor pays tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach’s favoured Leipzig coffee house, where he led regular musical gatherings – the original Coffee Concerts – throughout the 1730s.
In an intimate concert setting, the incomparably brilliant, charismatic Iranian-American harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani opens the series with the Goldberg Variations (BWV 988).
N.B. This series is held at Syde Manor, Gloucestershire. Please refer to the Cheltenham Festival website for more information.
