Beethoven Festival with André Watts

Sep 13, 2014
8:00 PM

Location: Hill Auditorium, 825 N University Ave

Celebrate a gala season opener with piano legend André Watts who owns the piece he’s playing like no other. Combine his extraordinary playing with one of the most recognized concertos in the world, the powerful Emperor Concerto by Beethoven, and you have a blockbuster concert experience. Enhance your all-Beethoven evening with the much-loved Symphony No. 5 and hear why people claim Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3 defines what an overture is. André Watts burst upon the music world at the age of 16 when Leonard Bernstein chose him to make his debut with the NY Philharmonic in their Young People’s Concerts broadcast. Today, this much-honored pianist is a perennial favorite with orchestras around the world. (photo cred: Steve Sherman)
