Keyboard Conversations® with Jeffrey Siegel: Celebrating Leonard Bernstein & Gershwin
Live at the Harris Center – August 26
American pianist Jeffrey Siegel has been a soloist with the world’s great orchestras and has collaborated with many of the pre-eminent conductors of our time. He has performed his Keyboard Conversations® at the Harris Center every year since the facility opened; the reasons for this are instantly obvious. In presenting these "concerts with lively commentary," Mr. Siegel offers comments on the work, the composer, even the times in which the work was composed, and then gives a virtuosic performance of a piano masterpiece. A lively Q&A concludes the concert. His presentations enrich the listening experience for the avid music lover as well as provide an inviting, instantly accessible introduction to great music for those new to classical music. "An achievement of a sort seldom heard" (New York Times).
