Guest:  Jeffrey Siegel, internationally-acclaimed concert pianist 

On this program, concert pianist Jeffrey Siegel, creator of “Keyboard Conversations,” describes these unique concerts with lively commentary.  Prior to each work he prefaces the full performance with personal information about the composer and illustrates a few musical themes in the composition. You’ll hear how he combines the music with storytelling in excerpts from Schubert’s life and music and the poignant story behind Beethoven’s famous “Fur Elise.”

Jeffrey Siegel will celebrate his 26th year performing in Madison on Tuesday, September 24, in Mills Hall at UW-Madison with a tribute to “The Glory of Beethoven.” The program begins at 7:30 PM. Tickets may be purchased at the door, or contact the Union Theater Box Office, 608-262-2201.
