Commemorating Rachmaninoff & Debussy: Keyboard Conversations with Jeffrey Siegel, at Scandinavia House

Thursday September 27, 2018, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$20 – $25

Internationally acclaimed pianist Jeffrey Siegel celebrates the tenth season of his ever-popular Keyboard Conversations® series at Scandinavia House. Each evening comprises an informal commentary on the music and its composers, a full performance of each work, and a short Q & A session. The accessible format enables audiences to build an understanding of classical music whether newcomer or seasoned listener.

This season includes concerts on Thursday, September 27, 2018; Thursday, January 24, 2019; Thursday, March 14, 2019; and Thursday, May 2, 2019.

2018 is the 75th anniversary of the death of Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) and the 100th anniversary of the death of Debussy (1862-1918) — two of the most beloved composers of all time. Jeffrey Siegel will perform works including the famous Clair de Lune, Prelude in C Sharp Minor, the popular 18th Variation from the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, the humorous Golliwogg’s Cake Walk, and various short preludes by both composers.
