Siegel’s enthusiasm is contagious, his credentials are world-class and his virtuosity is astounding. His performances begin with an insightful and entertaining prologue on the music and its composer, followed by a full performance of the works and end with a lively question and answer session.

This performance is the third stop of a musical travelogue – Russia: Rebels on the Red Carpet. The program features passionate etudes of Rachmaninoff, biting sarcasms of Prokofiev, and compositions of Shostakovich.
