An American Salute
The distinguished American pianist Jeffrey Siegel presents a concert-with-commentary format, in which lively, incisive remarks precede virtuoso performances of piano masterpieces.
Mr Siegel will briefly discuss and then perform Gershwin's rarely heard solo piano version of Rhapsody in Blue, Leonard Bernstein's Meditation on a Wedding (a Birmingham première), Aaron Copland's Cat and the Mouse, and Louis Moreau Gottshalk's The Union - Patriotic Paraphrase. The performance will conclude with a short question and answer session.
