About this event

Following his much-acclaimed account of Bach's 'Goldberg' Variations in last year's Proms Chamber Music series, former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Mahan Esfahani takes on another of Bach's landmark works, The Art of Fugue, this time in his own instrumental arrangement. In doing so he revivies the informal spirit of Bach's Leipzig coffee-house concerts, in which the composer would direct his own band of musicians.

There will be no interval
