Jeffrey Siegel’s Keyboard Conversations® returns to RIC Oct. 28
Jeffrey Siegel will return to Rhode Island College for an eighth season on Wednesday, Oct. 28, with another unique “concert with commentary.” He will present a Keyboard Conversations® concert at 7:30 p.m. in Nazarian Center’s Sapinsley Hall. Each composition in Siegel’s performance piece, “Chopin for Lovers” was inspired by a different woman in Chopin’s life.
The program begins with an entertaining prologue on the music, followed by a full performance of the works and concludes with a brisk question and answer session. The result is accessible music with a more focused and meaningful listening experience than an ordinary concert.
Siegel has been described as “a world-renowned pianist with intelligence, insight, charm and exceptional skills as a communicator” by The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Daily Camera of Boulder, Colo., noted that he is a performer who “... commands the unwavering attention of his audience with a unique combination of gifts as artist, educator and entertainer.”
In addition to his Keyboard Conversations® concerts, Siegel has performed as a soloist with many of the world’s greatest orchestras in the U.S. and abroad, including the London Symphony, Moscow State Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestra.
