Andre Watts entered the music scene at age 16 when Leonard Bernstein chose him to debut with the New York Philharmonic in a national broadcasted Young People's Concerts. Just two weeks later the legenary maestro asked Andre to substitute at the last minute for an ailing Glenn Gould with the Philharmonic, launching his career in storybook fashion.

Watts joins the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Sunday afternoon in Loeb Playhouse for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9. WBAA's John Clare spoke to him about the concert, about working without a conductor, and Mozart.
