George Mason Concert Hall

In his second concert of the season, Jeffrey Siegel presents music of two of the most popular composers of the Romantic era in a performance of engaging melodies and nationalistic pride! Edvard Grieg was known as “the Chopin of the North” and put Norway on the classical music map in the same way Chopin celebrated his Polish heritage and homeland.

This delightful program features Chopin’s exhilirating [sic] Polonaises, Op. 22 and a group of his soulful Mazurkas, as well as Grieg’s zesty Norwegian Dances, and his heartbreaking, narrative Ballade. Part artist, part educator, and part entertainer, Jeffrey Siegel has enchanted Center audiences for nearly a quarter century with his brilliant artistry, massive pianotechnique, and a remarkable gift for making the audience a part of the classical music experience. “Siegel lit the stage…piano playing to delight the ears.” (San Diego Evening Tribune)

In addition to the remaining two Keyboard Conversations performances at the Center for the Arts, Mr. Siegel will also be performing at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on March 6, 2016. Take a look.
