Mahan Esfahani and Sean Shibe

In partnership with SJE Arts

With dazzling technique and a refusal to bend to tradition, Mahan Esfahani has transformed the image of the harpsichord. His creative programming and commitment to commissioning new works have drawn the attention of audiences and critics alike across Europe, Asia and North America. He was the first and only harpsichordist to be a BBC New Generation Artist, a BorlettiBuitoni prize winner and a nominee for Gramophone’s Artist of the Year (not once, but three times).

Esfahani will be joined in concert by Sean Shibe, who has also spent his career rejecting clichés and overturning preconceptions whilst proving himself as one of the foremost guitarists of his generation. He was the first guitarist selected for the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme, is the only solo guitarist to be awarded a BorlettiBuitoni Trust Fellowship and in 2018 became the first guitarist to receive the RPS Award for Young Artists.

Don’t miss the rare treat of seeing these two exceptional musicians together. They will be performing:
