From Heart to Art: The Romantic Music of Franz Liszt

Described by The New York Times as “a performer who colors with virtuoso artistry,” extraordinary pianist Jeffrey Siegel is known for enchanting his audiences with his immense talent, delicious wit and lively and enlightening commentary on some of the most cherished music in the classical repertoire. In his second “concert with commentary” of the season, Mr. Siegel explores the romantic music of Franz Liszt, who is often credited with creating the Symphonic Poem. This program features the sizzling virtuosity and seductive lyricism of the 19th century’s rock star of the piano from the beloved Liebesträume to the exuberant Hungarian Rhapsodies. “Siegel’s programs strengthen the fragile bonds of communication between composer and listener and are as welcome as they are rare.” (Chicago Tribune)
