The distinguished pianist André Watts regrets that he must withdraw from his upcoming concerts with The Philadelphia Orchestra because he is not yet sufficiently recovered from prostate cancer treatments. Instead, Lisa de la Salle, one of today's most exciting young keyboard artists, will perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, the originally scheduled work.
In advising The Philadelphia Orchestra of his inability to perform this week, Mr. Watts expressed his sincere regret to the Orchestra and its audiences, saying, “Philadelphia is such a special place to me, and I deeply regret not being well enough to celebrate my 60th anniversary with them.” The Philadelphia Orchestra is deeply grateful that Lisa de la Salle has agreed to perform in place of Mr. Watts this week. All of us at The Philadelphia Orchestra join in wishing him a full and swift recovery, with best musical wishes for the future!
