Pianist André Watts, who was scheduled to perform Tuesday at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center’s Chamber Music Festival and then on Wednesday with The Philadelphia Orchestra, has had to cancel his performances because of tendinitis in his left forearm.

Pianist Emanuel Ax will replace Watts for the Philadelphia Orchestra program. Ax will perform Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, instead of the previously scheduled Grieg Piano Concerto.

Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet will substitute for Watts at the Chamber Music Festival on Tuesday.

Both Ax and Thibaudet have played at SPAC in previous seasons and are also scheduled to perform in Orchestra and Chamber Music programs during the 2008 season.
