Jeffrey Siegel has been soloist with some of the world's greatest orchestras. In the United States, engagements include the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and others. Abroad, these include the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, Philharmonic and Philharmonia, Moscow State Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Stockholm Philharmonic, and others. In addition to his solo appearances, Jeffrey Siegel presents Keyboard Conversations®, concerts with lively commentary in an innovative format that differs from traditional recitals and appearances with symphony orchestras. A Keyboard Conversation® is a concert with each work on the program performed in its entirety. Siegel speaks briefly and informally to the audience before performing each composition, illustrating with a few pertinent musical examples from the keyboard. The commentary makes the music more accessible and the listening experience more focused and meaningful for music lovers of all ages.
