American pianist Andre Watts is returning to Buffalo February 20 and 21 to play Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 with JoAnn Falletta conducting the BPO. Immediately following the assassination of JFK, while in Buffalo, he was asked to perform the slow movement to that work for the first time, on TV! Find out how he handled it.

Conductor David Handel and Geoffrey Herd speak with WNED's Peter Hall about the  Amherst Symphony Orchestra Valentine's Day Concert, February 14 at 3pm -  "Russian Splendor" - with music by Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky.

Buffalo born pianist and composer Amy Williams returns home for a concert at the Burchfield-Penney Art Center on Friday, February 12 at 8:00 p.m. to play a variety of works involving combinations of piano, cello, flute, percussion, and voice. Each half of the concert begins with Bach and ends with Williams, and in between are works by both Robert and Clara Schumann, as well as contemporary works. Amy spoke from her Pittsburgh home with WNED's Peter Hall.
