Put aside any casual assumptions about what a harpsichord can do – or can be – in the 21st century: Mahan Esfahani plans to light up Milton Court with an ear-opening contemporary recital.

He is an artist who doesn’t acknowledge boundaries; and whose fiercely intelligent virtuosity illuminates everything he touches. The Guardian hailed the ‘piercing insight’ of his Bach: imagine how he’ll sound in new works by Anahita Abbasi and the Faroese composer Sunleif Rasmussen. In the intimate space of Milton Court, it should sound remarkable.

Programme:
Sunleif Rasmussen Quadroforone (world premiere; Barbican commission)
Berio Rounds
Xenakis Khoaï
Anahita Abbasi New work (UK premiere)
John Cage Excerpts from HPSCHD
