Keyboard Conversations® with Jeffrey Siegel: Storytelling in Tones
Become a classical music insider with virtuoso pianist Jeffrey Siegel. Popular with classical music lovers and newcomers alike, his unique “concerts with commentary” format gives the story behind the music. In this concert, you’ll hear the vibrant works of Scott Joplin, Aaron Copland, Manuel de Falla, and Carl Maria von Weber. Get the inside scoop on these works that tell specific stories with sound such as who is doing the inviting in Weber’s Invitation to the Dance, who is dancing in de Falla’s zesty Ritual Fire Dance, and who wins the chase in Copland’s hilarious The Cat and The Mouse. Siegel is “one of those few pianists who impresses first as interpreter. A first-class musician who can sketch and colour with greatness,” (The London Times). An interactive question and answer session will conclude this program.
This performance is family friendly.
