Bach to Blue

  • Location:111 Spring Street, South Salem, NY
  • Venue:South Salem Presbyterian Church
  • Length:4pm

Artist: Jeffrey Biegel

Jeffrey Biegel returns to our Series where two years ago his virtuosic playing and engaging personality thrilled our audience. His electrifying technique and mesmerizing touch have received critical acclaim worldwide, including from Leonard Bernstein who in 1985 called him: “a splendid musician and a brilliant performer.”  His reputation continues to grow as evidenced by his hectic schedule and how often his can be heard on WQXR.  Also known for his chamber music collaborations, he is a member of the Dicterow-DeMaine-Biegel piano trio.  A composer and arranger, Mr. Biegel once again presents works by composers who were virtuosos in their own right, including the rarely heard 1924 original manuscript with 88 missing measures.
