In the second of his “Concerts with Commentary” at the Center for the Arts this season, Jeffrey Siegel presents music inspired by Robert Schumann’s romantic life in “Schumann — Musical Love Letters” on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m.

Siegel has been a soloist with the world’s great orchestras and also performs solo engagements across the United States. Last June, Random House Audio released an audiobook series of four Keyboard Conversations CDs: “Mozart and Friends”, “The Power and Passion of Beethoven,” “The Romanticism of the Russian Soul” and “The Romance of the Piano.”

Jeffrey Siegel studied with Rudolf Ganz in his native Chicago, the legendary Rosina Lhévinne at the Juilliard School and Ilona Kabos in London. He resides in New York City with his wife and two children.

The Keyboard Conversations series is sponsored by Jordan Kitt’s Music. A free Young Artists Musicale, featuring young metro area piano students, begins at 6 p.m. in the Concert Hall lobby.

Tickets are $38, $30 and $19; tickets for children 12 and younger are half price. Charge by phone at 888-945-2468 or visit
