A Decidedly Undogmatic Conversation w/ Mahan Esfahani

Play
Read more

Mahan Esfahani is a world-renowned harpsichordist who has said that it is his mission to rehabilitate the harpsichord as an instrument for modern audiences. In this conversation, we talked about Beethoven, playing modern music on the harpsichord, and nearly starting a riot over the music of Steve Reich! We also discussed the battles WITHIN the early music movement over performance practice. Mahan is one of the most fearless and outspoken voices in classical music so I think you'll really enjoy this one!

In the latest episode of the Academy podcast, we eavesdrop on a conversation between harpsichord heroes Mahan Esfahani and John Constable.

Mahan, who was inspired to take up the instrument as a child, in part, after seeing the Academy perform live, has made it his life’s mission to rehabilitate the harpsichord in the mainstream of concert instruments. He has a busy and varied solo career and can regularly be heard on BBC Radio 3, most recently presenting a 3-part series, ‘The Alternative Bach’.

John Constable is Principal pianist and harpsichordist for the Academy, a post he has held since 1984. He was principal pianist of the London Sinfonietta from when it was founded in 1968 up until 2017.

Hear Mahan Esfahani in performance with the Academy in the cities of Flensburg (28 July)  and Kiel (29 July). Click for details and tickets.

Produced by Ben Eshmade.

The post Episode 13: The Harpsichord with Mahan Esfahani and John Constable appeared first on Academy of St Martin in the Fields.
