Baroque meets contemporary in this recital by two BBC New Generation Artists. Violinist Jennifer Pike and harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani will team up to present a programme pairing composers of the baroque era with those of the 20th century – while demonstrating the incredible versatility of the traditional violin and harpsichord pairing. British/Polish violinist Jennifer Pike first gained international recognition when, aged 12, she became the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the youngest major prizewinner in the Menuhin International Violin Competition. Iranian-born Mahan Esfahani was a BBC New Generation Artist, BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Newcomer of the Year’, and a shortlisted artist for the Gramophone Artist of the Year — the first harpsichordist to achieve each of these accolades.
