MOZART AND SCHUBERT: ROMANTIC FANTASIES
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 7PM


Fairfax, Virginia, September 16, 2005— Pianist Jeffrey Siegel in his unique, upbeat KEYBOARD CONVERSATIONS® series, combines lively and accessible commentary about composers and their compositions with full-length performances of featured works. The programs conclude with a brisk question-and-answer session that audiences in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Washington, D. C., Cleveland, Dallas, Phoenix and Denver embrace enthusiastically.

The October 30 program features Mozart’s romantic interpretations in Fantasy in D minor, as well as Schubert’s “Wanderer” Fantasy. Mozart and Schubert are considered symphonic masters, however, they are also credited with moving music forward into the Romantic period.

GREAT PERFORMANCES AT MASON is a program of George Mason University’s Center for the Arts, the professional presenting arm of the College of Visual and Performing Arts. The College of Visual and Performing Arts exists to create an academic environment in which the arts may be considered both as individual disciplines and as interdisciplinary forms that strengthen each other. Believing that an education in the arts is deepened by regular contact with the work of distinguished visiting artists, the College draws on a variety of professional presenting and producing units where artists from across the country and around the world regularly perform, give master classes, work with students during extended residencies, and interact with the community in a variety of other ways. These programs at the Center for the Arts Concert Hall, TheaterSpace, Galleries, Harris Theater, and other venues, provide a diverse selection of challenging and entertaining cultural experiences for the University community, as well as Northern Virginia and the greater Washington, D.C. area. The College houses four academic departments: Art and Visual Technology, Dance, Music and Theater.
