JeffreySiegelwithpiano-smHour 2

There is concern in the music world that there is a decline in interest in classical music. Why should we care about classical piano music? What is the difference of sonata and an etude? Will a composer’s intention of a work help us understand it better? Our guest, pianist and music educator, JEFFREY SIEGEL, will sit down at our Radio Times Studio 2 piano and explain what is behind some of Frederik Chopin’s masterpieces. Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center is celebrating Chopin’s 200th birthday, and Siegel is returning with his “Keyboard Conversations” series Monday, April 19th.
