Enjoy a feast of French music in Keyboard Conversations® with Jeffrey Siegel: Festive French Fare, featuring Debussy’s Clair de Lune, Ravel’s enchanting Sonatine, Saint-Saëns’ devilish Danse macabre, Fauré’s Après un rêve, Satie’s dream-like Gymnopédie No. 1, and a tuneful Novelette by Poulenc. Through these pieces, he delves into the lives of the composers responsible for crafting the French musical aesthetic of the 20th century. Siegel’s unique “concerts with commentary” format delivers deep insight with wit and humor, and his piano playing is incomparable. “Siegel’s programs strengthen the fragile bonds of communication between composer and listener and are as welcome as they are rare” (The Chicago Tribune). An interactive question-and-answer session will conclude this program.

This performance is appropriate for all ages.

Tickets: $50, $43, $29; half-price for youth through Grade 12

Run Time: approximately two hours, plus intermission
