TAM Chin-fai Samuel 譚展輝

 

Tam Chin-fai, Samuel is a Doctor of Music who had studied under Professor Victor Chan and Professor David Gwilt.  His early performed work Concerto Grosso I won him the Yu Luan Shih Creativity Award from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.  He worked in the field of popular music production after his first graduation and had received several essential awards.  In recent years, Tam has switched his focus to the field of music education as well as remaining active in serious music composition.  His works have been performed by several professional ensembles and performers, among them Swiss Contemporary Music Duo UMS ‘n JIP, Bang On A Can-All-Stars, Hong Kong Kamerata, Sregnis Singers, The Cantacore Society, tenor Valentin Johannes Gloor, pianists Simone Keller and Shum Kin-wai, and yangqin player Brian Lai, etc., in Italy, Switzerland, Australia, France, Mongolia, Greece and Hong Kong.  His new works show great interest in Chinese subjects and attempt to blend tonal and atonal sounds in a contemporary musical context.  His string quartet Shan Shui I was selected for the final round of the 7th International Contemporary Music Contest “Città di Udine”, and was published in Italy.  His choral work Deng Le You Yuan is selected for publication by Hong Kong Composers’ Guild.  According to appreciations, piano work Moments has been performed in public thrice within half year, as well as abstract piece Birds’ Words from Liao Zhai has been already performed seven times in different countries recently.
