The Greatness of Chopin

Gain a greater appreciation for one of the great masters of the Romantic period as this virtuoso pianist delves into the work of Frédéric Chopin. Praised by The New York Times for performances that are “expressive” and “full of passion,” Jeffrey Siegel has spent the last four decades providing illuminating and witty insight into the lives and works of some of the world’s most brilliant composers. His unique and popular “concerts with commentary” format has delighted piano enthusiasts and turned classical music newcomers into devotees. Enjoy the heroic Polonaises, the dreamy Nocturnes, and dynamic Scherzos, and learn of the mystery behind one of the most beloved compositions of all time, the Fantasy Impromptu. “A pianist with a bravura technique and a big, gorgeous sound…and when the artist himself offers the inside scoop, the musical experience becomes vastly more personal.” (Denver Post)
