Mahan Esfahani, the harpsichord superstar whose Bach performances The Guardian has called “revelatory,” joins us with leading flute virtuoso Brandon Patrick George for works by J.S. and C.P.E. Bach.
The flute and harpsichord were crucial to Mendelssohn’s musical education, and though he composed no piece featuring them, these works had a clear influence on his writing. In this final mainstage concert of the festival, George and Esfahani conjure Bach’s time and share a source of Mendelssohn’s inspiration.
