Tickets for Watts
André Watts was born to an American father and a Hungarian mother, the latter of whom famously used stories of Liszt's work ethic to inspire Watts to practice as a child. This paid off when he was selected to fill in for Glenn Gould with the New York Philharmonic in 1963, where he did a outstanding performance of Liszt's first concerto. In Durham, the Avery Fisher Prize recipient trains an all-Liszt program in honor of Liszts bicentennial.
During my internship with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, I had the opportunity to work and spend time with Watts. He is one of the most humble and outstanding musicians of our generation.
