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 centerpiece 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 De Falla will also receive its world premiere.
Laurence Osbourn’s new work forms part of Britten Sinfonia’s Musically Gifted campaign. See Laurence’s Musically Gifted page for details of how you can receive signed scores, free tickets and even meet the composer.
