Mahan Esfahani makes his debut at Lincoln Center for the 'Mostly Mozart' festival (www.mostlymozart.org)
Named BBC Music Magazine’s 2015 Newcomer of the Year, Iranian-born Mahan Esfahani has traveled the globe, from Boston to Prague to London, on a singular quest to prove the harpsichord is not only still relevant, but revolutionary. The “exhaustingly brilliant” artist (New York Times) presents a late-night ode to the ultimate keyboard composer, from beloved excerpts of Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier through a 1978 chaconne by the avant-garde composer György Ligeti.
This concert will be streamed live. Cameras will be present.
