CANCELLED: André Watts Plays Ravel's Concerto for Left Hand
THE ASO WEBSITE REPORTS THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Pianist Andre Watts is recovering from a nerve injury to his left hand and will not be able to perform Beethoven's "Emperor" Piano Concerto when he appears with the Atlanta Symphony on March 19 and 21, 2020. However, we are pleased to announce that Mr. Watts will be performing the Ravel Concerto for Left Hand, which he has reworked to perform with his right hand. Mr. Watts would like to thank Music Director Robert Spano and the Atlanta Symphony for agreeing to this necessary program change.
2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven, a composer who shattered norms, setting the bar for musicians of the future while composing some of the most extraordinary work ever committed to paper.
This week, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra welcomes piano legend André Watts for Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, a piece commissioned by a concert pianist who had lost his right arm in the First World War. Robert Spano keeps the evening on a high with one of the great revelations of symphonic music: Beethoven's Seventh Symphony.
