World-renowned pianist and Grammy Award-winner Andr�� Watts, who was first discovered by Leonard Bernstein at the age of 16, and who's appeared as a guest soloist with the BSO regularly since he was a student at the Peabody Institute, returns for the symphony's 100th anniversary season. The Orange County Register raves about Watts: "The piano became, in his hands, not just a tool to waft beautiful melodies, but an instrument that could growl and sting, rush and hover, feint and jab, accompany as well as solo." And he'll show off that prodigious talent with Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9, "Jeunehomme," which respected critic Charles Rosen has called "the first unequivocal [classical] masterpiece." Guest conductor Mario Venzago and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra open the concert with Selections from Armide by Gluck and close with Schumann's energetic Symphony No. 4, which was penned soon after the composer's long-awaited marriage to his true love Clara.
