American pianist Jeffrey Siegel has been soloist with the world’s great orchestras. In addition to his solo appearances, he presents Keyboard Conversations, a unique concert plus commentary format in which he speaks to the audience about the music before performing each work in its entirety. Now, ushering in his 10th season of Keyboard Conversations at the Concert Hall with this first program of the season, Siegel performs “Immortal Classic Masters” at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22.
The concert features Haydn’s Fantasy in C, Gypsy Rondo, and C Minor Sonata. The program also showcases the F Major Sonata of Mozart and Johann Hummel.
As a conductor, Siegel has appeared with the Pittsburgh Symphony, Saint Louis Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, as well as orchestras in France, Scandinavia, and South America. He is equally at home in the dual role of conductor/pianist, directing the orchestra from the keyboard.
Tickets for Keyboard Conversations are $37.50 and 32.50. Children 12 and under are admitted for half price. Charge by phone at (703) 218-6500 or visit www.tickets.com.
