Andre Watts
(born June 20, 1946) is a classical pianist and professor at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University.



Andre Watts held an all Liszt Recital in Tokyo on Nov.22/1988.
I amazed Watts went backstage when he finished the third piece of the 'Grandes Etudes de Paganini', "La Campanella".This piece is normally played without intermission.

In the second part,he played the Soata in B minor which gave me the impression that he was was posessed by a demon.....

This is one of the best performance of the Liszt's Sonata in B minor,I suppose.
