Goldberg Variations: Derek Tam, harpsichord

Friday, March 27, 2020, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

A summit of the keyboard literature, Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations have become infamous for their breadth of invention, monumental structure, and technical demands. Celebrate Bach's 335th birthday with a performance of the Goldberg Variations, which start and end with the same simple aria but showcase the emotional depth and intellectual breadth of the composer in the thirty variations between. Praised not only for his "deft" conducting (San Francisco Chronicle) but also as a "a master of {e_description}#x5b;the harpsichord{e_description}#x5d;" (San Francisco Classical Voice) and "the fortepianist of the beguiling fingers" (Bloomington Herald-Times), Derek Tam appears regularly throughout the Bay Area and beyond as a conductor and historical keyboardist. Tam performs with some of the nation's leading period ensembles, and is a founding member of MUSA, a Baroque chamber ensemble, as well as the fortepianist for the Costanoan Trio. He is the Director of Music at First Church Berkeley, and also serves on the board of Early Music America. He is also the executive director of the San Francisco Early Music Society, a major advocate for early music in the United States and the presenter of the biennial Berkeley Festival & Exhibition.
