OFJCC Brings Classical Music to Palo Alto with Keyboard Conversations®
Enjoy the beloved music of Gershwin, Bernstein, Copland and others in Jeffrey Siegel’s unique “concert with commentary,” a joy for both the piano aficionado and novice alike.
Siegel’s Keyboard Conversations®
The program in the Schultz Cultural Arts Hall will contain the rarely heard solo piano version of Gershwin's “Rhapsody in Blue,” Aaron Copland's humorous “Cat and the Mouse,” Scott Joplin's ragtime charmer “The Wall Street Rag,” and Leonard Bernstein's touching, melodically gorgeous “Anniversaries.”
Mr. Siegel has been a soloist with many of the world's great orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony and New York Philharmonic. Mr. Siegel has also collaborated with many of the pre-eminent conductors of our time such as Claudio Abbado, Pierre Boulez, Charles Dutoit, James Levine and Michael Tilson Thomas.
