It looks like a piano, yet it sounds like strings. Probably invented in the Middle Ages in Europe, the harpsichord was popular during the Renaissance, but the piano began giving it a run for its money in the 18th century and has pretty much eclipsed it once and for all. The Friday, Feb. 15 edition of the free noon-concert series in UC Berkeley's Hertz Hall features harpsichordist Stephen Gamboaperforming Froberger's Toccata in A Minor and Suite in A Major along with other works. 12:15 p.m. Music.berkeley.edu
