Keyboard Conversations® With Jeffrey Siegel
Returning for his 40th season in Scottsdale, acclaimed pianist Jeffrey Siegel makes the joy of music accessible to audiences of all ages. His brilliantly engaging concerts with commentary combine captivating remarks with world-class performances of masterpieces of the piano repertoire, and conclude with a fast-paced Q-and-A session.
Siegel plays and comments on some of the most emotion-stirring music ever written. In a program designed for the week of Valentine’s Day, Siegel explains why the “Romantic” era deserves its name, and performs music intended to stir the heart of the beloved. Siegel is bound to touch on Schumann’s ardent courting of Clara Wieck, Chopin’s love for a female novelist with a man’s name and Liszt’s heartthrob image.
The Denver Post writes of Siegel: “…a pianist with a bravura technique and a big, gorgeous sound…and when the artist himself offers the inside scoop, the musical experience becomes vastly more personal.”
