Grand Hall c.5.00pm-c.5.45pm

Chamber Concert Featuring Mahan Esfahani

George Lewis Timelike Weave (UK Premiere)

Anahita Abbasi Intertwined Distances

Miroslav Srnka Triggering

Mahan Esfahani harpsichord

Put aside any assumptions about what a harpsichord sounds like. All 3 pieces were written for the virtuosic Mahan Esfahani, an artist who knows no boundaries. Timelike Weave is inspired by the logic of Afrodiasporic quilting aesthetics and the notion of the closed timelike curve in quantum physics resulting in an electronic sound that is part Milton Babbitt, part McCoy Tyner and part Evan Parker. The electronic element of Anahita Abbasi’s Intertwined Distances came out of a close collaboration between Esfahani and the composer and provides a “confrontational  backdrop to the equally explosive live element” (The Guardian). Complemented by Miroslav Srnka’s humorous Triggering, the composer sets out to discover all of the in-between sounds of the harpsichord, breakdown our presumptions of what a harpsichord sounds like.

(unreserved seating, open to Festival Pass holders + Saturday Pass holders)


The Old Fruitmarket c.6.00pm-c.6.30pm

Andrew Paine feat. Kevin McCarvel: The Domestique Tunings
