Jeffrey Siegel concludes this season of Keyboard Conversations with “Liszt – The Devil Made Me Do It!” on Sunday, April 22, at 7 p.m., in the Center for the Arts Concert Hall on the Fairfax Campus.

The program is scheduled to include “Unstern” (Evil Star), “Mephisto Waltz,” Consolation in D-flat, Etude No. 6 in A minor (after Paganini), and “Totentanz.”

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.”

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.

A free Young Artists Musicale, featuring talented piano students grades 3-12, and winners of the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association Honors Recitals, will be held beginning at 6 p.m. in the Concert Hall lobby.
