Whether you are a classical music fan who wants to enhance your listening experience or a novice who wants a gentle introduction into the joys of classical music, you will be enthralled by this entertaining, informal, and compelling program.
"Keyboard Conversations" presents some of the most familiar and beloved melodies of all time, tunes we know and love, along with the interesting and touching human stories behind them. World famous concert pianist, Jeffrey Siegel, particularly celebrated for his concerts with commentary, engagingly discusses musical gems in an inviting manner and then performs these pieces for all to enjoy.
The Chicago Tribune has hailed Siegel, “the Leonard Bernstein of the keyboard.” The New York Times raved, “His performances were expressive and full of passion.” “This special edition of Keyboard Conversations was created specially for PBS and includes some of the most popular classical pieces of all time and the compelling stories behind these pieces,” says Mitch Peyser, show producer.
