the podium for these two
performances which
feature the talents of
world-renowned pianist
Andre Watts.
Maestro Gosling,
artistic director and
conductor of the state's
orchestra, has recently
returned from guest
conducting appearances in
Europe and Scandinavia.
Guest soloist Watts, the ,
son of an American Negro
Gl and his Hungarian wife,
has earned an
international reputation
for keyboard excellence.
At age 29, he already has
performed with the major
orchestras of the world
and in solo recitals
throughout the Soviet
Union, Japan, the United
States, Israel, and South
America.
Watts began his career
before the age of 10 when
he performed with the
Philadelphia Orchesta. He
received national attention
when Leonard Bernstein
introduced him to millions
of television viewers on a
New York Philharmonic
"Young People's
Concert." Later Bernstein
engaged the talented
young instrumentalist to
substitute at the last
minute for the ailing
Glenn Gould, further
enhancing Watts'
reputation as one of the
keyboard giants of the
century. In the enduing
years he continuea his
piano studies with Leon
Fleisher at the Peabody
Conservatory in Baltimore.
His 1 966 European
debut with the London
Symphony and a debut
with the Berlin
Philharmonic a year later
were followed by a world
tour for the United States
Department of State.
Since that time, Watts has
had such honors as playing
a state, and giving a
concert at the coronation
festivitie for the Shah of
Iran. On Lincoln Center's
"Great Performers" series,
Watts is the only artist to
have been re-engaged nine
years in succession, always
performing to capacity
crowds. He has been the
subject of an hour-long
documentary on the
National Educational
Television Network and
also of a CBS ' Camera
Three" show.
A student of the piano
who originally took
lessons from his mother,
Watts also holds an
honorary doctorate from
Yale University, the
youngest person to be so
distinguished in more than
200 years.
