Britten Sinfonia; Mahan Esfahani harpsichord

CPE Bach, Osborn, Strauss and Falla


  • Britten Sinfonia
  • Mahan Esfahani harpsichord

Celebrated harpsichordist and regular collaborator with Britten Sinfonia, Mahan Esfahani joins principal players in the first concert of Britten Sinfonia’s annual At Lunch series. The centrepiece of the concert is Manuel de Falla’s seminal but rarely heard Concerto for Harpsichord accompanied by flute, oboe, violin, cello and clarinet; and the performance also features a scoring of Richard Strauss’s suite from Capriccio for violin, cello and harpsichord. A new work by Laurence Osborn for the same instrumentation as the Falla will also receive its London première.

Join us for a 45 minute pre-concert talk at 12:15PM, featuring Laurence Osborn discussing his new work with Dr Kate Kennedy. Book your free ticket here.
