“….a superstar whose musicianship, imagination, virtuosity, cultural breadth and charisma far transcends the ivory tower in which the harpsichord has traditionally been placed.”        The Times

Mahan Esfahani has accumulated a remarkable number of firsts for the harpsichord;  he was a BBC New Generation Artist, a Borletti-Buitoni Trust prizewinner and was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year and Gramophone Artist of the Year.  He also played the first solo harpsichord recital in the history of the BBC Proms (2011).

“In Beethoven's Footsteps”
Webern: Langsamer Satz for String Quartet

Brahms: Quartet in A minor, Op. 51 no. 2

Remarkable throughout… bold, rich tone and expressive nuances contributing to an intense and deeply felt interpretation”   The New York Times

The Elias String Quartet has quickly established itself as one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of its generation. The quartet has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious chamber venues, including Carnegie Hall, the Vienna Musikverein, the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Wigmore Hall.

The Elias recently completed a major Beethoven ‘project’;  the quartet is now looking at the impact made by Beethoven on later composers.
