: Andre Watts: A career launched by Bernstein

Andre Watts Steve J. Sherman

Leonard Bernstein took a keen interest in helping many of his fellow musicians. He launched dozens of careers, including that of pianist Andre Watts. Less than a week after Watts debuted on stage with Bernstein and the NY Philharmonic, they made what became a best-selling recording. Hear it on Tuesday's Performance Today.
