Keyboard Conversations: Beethoven and Friends

Classical, Talks/Lectures

Keyboard Conversations®...are a concert-plus with lively commentary by renowned pianist, Jeffrey Siegel. A Keyboard Conversation is primarily a concert and each work on the program is performed in its entirety. As the significant plus, Mr. Siegel speaks briefly and informally to the audience before performing each composition, illustrating with a few pertinent musical examples from the keyboard. Our hope is that this unique format will make the music more accessible and the listening experience more focused and meaningful. This concert program: Beethoven and Friends - Keys to the Classics will include Haydn's vivacious, humorous Sonata in D, Mozart's deeply personal, contemplative Rondo in A Minor and jolly Gigue, along with Beethoven's tempestuous Sonata Pathetique.
