Mahan Esfahani directs Britten Sinfonia

Presented by Saffron Hall

No one has done more to enhance the image of the harpsichord in recent years than the Iranian-American virtuoso Mahan Esfahani who has captivated audiences with his fiery and engaging performances. In this concert he performs, and directs Britten Sinfonia, in a programme peppered with Mediterranean flavour including one of De Falla’s most popular ballet scores featuring the stunning Ritual Fire Dance.

Pre-concert talk: 6.30pm
There will be a pre-concert talk with Mahan Esfahani at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders). Due to rehearsals in the Hall, the pre-concert talk will take place in the Sixth Form Common Room.

This concert will finish at approximately 9.20pm
