“The Philharmonic Orchestra closed 2017 with a gala that included Enrique Graf and Ligia Amadio, greeted with a standing ovation.”
“In the second part, the beautiful “Concerto for two pianos” by Francis Poulenc was performed. Graf and De Bustos achieved an excellent blend with the orchestra and their version was characterized by rhythmic precision, balanced virtuosity and an expressiveness that had its peak in the beautiful “Larghetto” that evokes Mozart.” Read it here. (El Pais, in Spanish)
