Keyboard Conversations®...are a concert-plus with lively commentary by renowned pianist, Jeffrey Siegel. A Keyboard Conversation is primarily a concert and each work on the
program is performed in its entirety. As the significant plus, Mr. Siegel speaks briefly and informally to the audience before performing each composition, illustrating with a few pertinent musical examples from the keyboard. Our hope is that this unique format will make the music more accessible and the listening experience more focused and meaningful.
The Joyous Music of Beethoven. This program will include the boisterous Rage Over a Lost Penny, the exhilarating Polonaise, the intimate Bagatelles, the "Theresa Sonata" - who was she? - and the "Farewell Sonata" - who was leaving and why was Beethoven so deeply affected?
