Dan Tepfer



Following the critical acclaim for his Goldberg Variations/Variations program, Dan Tepfer presents his new Bach program, Inventions/Reinventions.

Dec 16, 2021 - Dec 16, 2021. Starting: 07:30 PM

Bach composed his set of Inventions as study pieces for students, covering eight major and seven minor keys, for a total of fifteen. However, since there are twenty-four possible major and minor keys, nine keys are missing. In Inventions/Reinventions, Tepfer plays Bach's original compositions sequentially while creating his own inventions for the missing keys, freely improvising new ones during each performance. In so doing, he follows the logic behind Bach's beloved original pieces, in which simple musical ideas, like characters in a novel or a play, are taken on a harmonic journey to foreign keys before returning home
