The Power and Passion of Brahms
“Siegel lit the stage…piano playing to delight the ears.” (San Diego Evening Tribune) Brilliant pianist Jeffrey Siegel concludes his 19th season of Keyboard Conversations at the Center for the Arts with a tribute to one of the leading composers of the romantic era and considered by many to be a “successor” to Beethoven: Johannes Brahms. Mr. Siegel shares the virtuoso composer’s majestic tonal miracles in short story form – the narrative Ballades, Op. 10 and the smoldering Rhapsodies, Op. 79.
“Jeffrey Siegel has everything: massive technique, musical sensitivity and character, wide tonal resources, immense reserves of power, and the ability to communicate.” (Los Angeles Times)
