Keyboard Conversations with Jeffrey Siegel: A French Musical Feast, at Scandinavia House

Tuesday February 13, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$20 – $25

Internationally acclaimed pianist Jeffrey Siegel returns this fall for 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 engaging format both makes friends of classical music and enriches the listening experience for avid music lovers.

In tonight’s performance, Siegel performs Debussy’s “Clair de Lune,” Ravel’s “Sonatine,” Saint-Saëns’s “Dance Macabre,” and a French-inspired work of the Danish composer Carl Nielsen.
