Reinventing the Harpshichord: From Renaissance to Reich


Thomas Tomkins Pavan Giles Farnaby Woody-Cock Henry Cowell Set of Four Viktor Kalabis Three Aquarelles Kaija Saariaho Jardin Secret II J.S. Bach Toccata in C Minor, BWV 911 Steve Reich Piano Phase Mahan Esfahani has almost single-handedly reintroduced the harpsichord into the mainstream of concert life. The Iranian-American musician was a BBC New Generation Artist from 2008 to 2010, a Borletti-Buitoni Trust prizewinner, and in 2014 was on the shortlist both for the Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year and Gramophone Artist of the Year – all firsts for the harpsichord. In 2015, he was honored with the BBC Music Magazine Newcomer of the Year award and was nominated in three categories for the Gramophone Awards – Best Baroque Instrumental, Best Instrumental, and again Artist of the Year. His recent recording Time Present and Time Past has garnered great critical acclaim. “Now he emerges as a superstar whose musicianship, imagination, virtuosity, cultural breath and charisma far transcends the ivory tower in which the harpsichord has traditionally been placed.” —The Times
