“The Power and Passion of Beethoven”







A Message from the Director

Welcome back to another season of the Silver Hall Concert Series. As you’ve noticed, you are reading this on your mobile device instead of a printed program. That’s because technology has advanced so it’s easier, more efficient, and environmentally friendly to reach you this way. These same adjectives can be applied to the Maltz Center and the Silver Hall Concert Series. 

The Maltz Center is now easier than ever to access with the completion of the Opportunity Corridor, the new gateway to University Circle! Our series of free concerts and free parking make it as simple and efficient as possible to come and enjoy the variety of music we host. As for environmentally friendly, the restoration of The Temple-Tifereth Israel to this world class concert hall has sparked a construction boom in University Circle bringing more and more people to a neighborhood already filled with art, music and culture. 

The Silver Hall Concert Series will continue for years to come because Cleveland is a treasure chest of musical talent. Musicians from around the world settle here because of your welcoming embrace of their work. Cleveland also fosters its own homegrown talent with community orchestras and ensembles that organize for the love of music and playing an instrument. We are a community that wants to cultivate talent; applaud and support artistic endeavors; and enjoy musical performances side-by-side with each other. 

As you enjoy this performance, I ask you to think about two things: One, how lucky we are to be here, enjoying this performance at the Maltz Center; and Two, who can I bring with me to the next event? 


Jeffrey Siegel

Long-established series continue in numerous U. S. cities, among them New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Palm Desert, Dallas, and Washington, D. C., and in London, England, as well. The loyalty of Jeffrey Siegel’s audiences is heartwarming. In 2023-2024, the Scottsdale series marks its forty-fifth season, and the Chicago series celebrates its fifty-fifth. Mr. Siegel has appeared in radio interviews on classical music stations across the U. S. and has been a frequent guest in interviews and live performances broadcast throughout the United Kingdom by the BBC. “Keyboard Conversations® ~ Piano Treasures,” a Time Life production, has been broadcast by PBS to more than 150 cities nationwide, and is available now on DVD. CD releases include The Romantic Music of Chopin; The Miracle of Mozart, recorded live in London; The Power and Passion of Beethoven; The Romanticism of the Russian Soul and The Romance of the Piano (Random House Audio Publishing Group); Music for the Young – and Young at Heart (WFMT Radio, Chicago); American Pianistic Treasures (WEDU, Tampa); and Spellbinding Bach. Mr. Siegel’s recording of Gershwin’s complete works for piano and orchestra, with Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony, continues to be a best seller and is available on Amazon. Born into a musical family, Jeffrey Siegel studied with Rudolf Ganz in his native Chicago, with the legendary Rosina Lhévinne at The Juilliard School and, as a Fulbright Scholar, with Ilona Kabos in London. Mr. Siegel and his wife live in New York.


“An achievement of a sort seldom heard.” The New York Times

"…a pianist with a bravura technique and a big, gorgeous sound…and when the artist himself offers the inside scoop, the musical experience becomes vastly more personal.” The Denver Post

“Jeffrey Siegel has everything: massive technique, musical sensitivity and character, wide tonal resources, immense reserves of power, and the ability to communicate.” Los Angeles Times
