PMF is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of world-renowned pianist André Watts on July 13. He participated in PMF in 1997 and 2009. At PMF, in addition to his concerto performances, solo recitals and chamber music concerts fascinated many audience members. He was also a dedicated teacher, serving as a coach at an open masterclass for the Academy pianists. We are ever grateful for his tremendous contributions. May he rest in peace.
