If you are a listener who likes to include a balance of music listening along with audiobooks, Jeffrey Siegel's Keyboard Conversations series is a welcome addition. Siegel performs his "concerts with conversation" live at universities and concert venues across the country, and even if you've had the opportunity to attend one of the programs, the real-time opportunity of the recorded program is appealing. In ROMANCE OF THE PIANO Siegel converses about pianists Liszt, Grieg, and Chopin, offering background--both musical and personal. Using musical illustrations and a lively presentation, Siegel engages listeners with this unique program. Aficionados will enjoy the interlude, and anyone who wants to know more about these musicians will come away satisfied, even delighted--and curious about the other programs in the series.
