Guildhall School is delighted to welcome world-renowned harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani – praised as ‘his instrument’s leading champion’ – to its professorial staff in spring. His Faculty Artist Series concert marks the inaugural outing of the School’s new harpsichord – a reproduction of an early 18th century Michael Mietke instrument, made by Alan Gotto in 2005 and generously donated to the School by David and Sandra Herbert.
The Faculty Artist Series 2014/15 is generously supported by Michael and Mercedes Hoffman.
