Sunday, Oct. 10 at 2:00 p.m. A Family-Friendly Program
Tickets: $48, $41, $29, half-price for youth through Grade 12.
Uncover the stories behind some of the most familiar piano works by Beethoven, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, and more. In Classics Declassified, Jeffrey Siegel acts as your musical detective and guide to unlock the intrigue and beauty of enchanting musical narratives by Mozart, Chopin, Franz Schubert, and Robert Schumann.
In this program, Siegel will play Mozart’s “Rondo alla turca” (from his Piano Sonata in A major, K. 331) and explore what a Rondo is and why is it “alla turca”? He’ll also play Schubert’s famous March Militaire and answer the question, “Was this music composed for a marching band?”
Finally, he’ll share Schumann’s Aria, a wordless love poem in sound. An interactive question and answer session will conclude this program.
