The jewel that is Mary and David Bowerman’s Champs Hill Music Room opens its doors to the rapidly emerging international talent, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani. Responsible for having opened up the harpsichord to a great deal of new interest, Mahan was born in Tehran in 1984 and received his first guidance on the piano from his father before exploring an interest in the harpsichord as a teenager. He went on to study musicology and history at Stanford University, becoming a BBC New Generation Artist from 2008-2010, and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust prizewinner.

In 2014 Mahan 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.

Following Roderick Williams’ lead, Mahan tackles another pillar of the concert repertoire, Bach’s remarkable Goldberg Variations.

Mahan will give a brief introduction to the Goldberg Variations at 7.15pm and the concert will commence at 8.00pm.

Wine included in the ticket price and served from 6.45pm.

Gardens open from 5pm for picnics. Please note, the only interval will take place between the pre-concert talk and the concert.

Generously supported by David & Mary Bowerman
