Distinguished classical pianist Jeffrey Siegle returns to Harris Center/Three Stages on Friday, Aug. 23.
Siegel’s unique “concerts with commentary” are a joy for both the piano aficionado and novice alike with exciting explorations of some of the best-loved works in the classical canon. He is returning for his fourth engagement with Harris Center/Three Stages with four programs of Keyboard Conversations, beginning with “Bach and the Romantics.”
This program includes performance and commentary on high voltage, dramatic works of Bach and Bach-inspired compositions by such diverse composers as Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Shostakovich and Felix Mendelssohn.
“Mr. Siegel’s audience is so broad — he can engage everyone from the most avid music lover to the inquisitive newcomer — we’re proud to bring him back. With his considerable experience as a concert pianist, his succinct commentary and a brisk question and answer session, he gives his fans a memorable evening every time,” Harris Center Executive Director Dave Pier said.
American pianist Siegel has been soloist with the world’s great orchestras. Abroad, these include the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, Philharmonic and Philharmonia, Moscow State Symphony, Munich’s Bayerischer Rundfunk, the Amsterdam, Oslo and Stockholm Philharmonic, Orchestra of La Scala and NHK Symphony of Japan.
