Humor and Heartache – Music of Mozart and Haydn

Become a classical music insider with virtuoso pianist Jeffrey Siegel. Popular with classical music lovers and newcomers alike, his unique “concerts with commentary” format gives the story behind the music. This concert explores the wide range of emotions the music of these two great composers express: deep anguish and sadness to irresistible charm, wit, and joy. Siegel opens the season with a program that includes Haydn’s exuberant Gypsy Rondo and melancholy Variations in F minor as well as Mozart’s passionate Piano Sonata No. 8 in A minor. Jeffrey Siegel is “one of those few pianists who impresses first as interpreter. A first-class musician who can sketch and colour with greatness” (The London Times). An interactive Question and Answer session will conclude this program.

The Young Artists Musicale, featuring school-aged piano students and sponsored by the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association, begins at 6 p.m. in the main lobby.
