Born in Tehran, Mahan Esfahani is today one of the leading figures in harpsichord playing of the music scene. A favourite and a last pupil of the ‘first lady of the harpsichord’, Zuzana Růžičková, he has already been extremely successful in spite of his youth. His was the first ever solo harpsichord recital at the famous BBC Proms festival in London (2011). Since then he has made solo appearances at many of the most prestigious concert halls, including the Wigmore Hall in London, the Wiener Konzerthaus, the Sumida Symphony Hall in Tokyo and the Library of Congress in Washington. His concerts have led him to China, Poland, Germany, Turkey, Estonia and Spain. After two successful recordings for Hyperion Records, which received the prestigious ‘Gramophone Award’ and ‘Diapason d’Or’, he signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. His first recording for this world-famous label included music by J. S. Bach, Scarlatti, Górecki and Reich. Mahan Esfahani studied musicology and history at Stanford University. After completing a research fellowship at New College, Oxford, he has been the harpsichord professor at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
