Manchester Collective and Mahan Esfahani are known for challenging perceptions and conventions around classical music: here, they present a truly international programme built around a thrilling work by a musical outsider.

Joseph Horovitz has never been an artist who fits neatly into the musical status quo. As a Jewish composer, born in Vienna and living in the UK, his musical influences are wide-ranging. His sensational Jazz Concerto for harpsichord, strings, and jazz kit defies easy description, much like harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani himself. Mahan has built a career around the unlikely and the virtuosic, bringing sparkling performances and a unique musicianship to a far broader repertoire than one might usually associate with his instrument.

Alongside the world premiere of a new work by British rising star Laurence Osborn, the ensemble will also present a rendition of Górecki’s breakneck Concerto for Harpsichord and Strings, and a set of canons and fugues by Bach, arranged by Esfahani.
