Keyboard Conversations® with Jeffrey Siegel: Musical Pictures

  • May 8, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Concert Hall

Piano virtuoso Jeffrey Siegel serves up an aural feast that envisions glorious sights through rapturous sounds! In this delightful performance, Mr. Siegel provides illuminating insight into the ever-popular Pictures at an Exhibition, as well as visually inspired short pieces of Debussy and Rachmaninoff. A perennial favorite at the Center for the Arts, Mr. Siegel has enchanted Fairfax audiences for well over two decades with his popular “concerts with commentary” series, which is entertaining for both piano enthusiasts and classical music newcomers alike. “A first-class musician who can sketch and color with greatness.” (The London Times)
