In Beethoven’s Concerto No. 4, Graf again demonstrated his unique pianistic talent , offering a version that coupled equal interpretative virtues with total technical mastery of the instrument. Graf’s performance was unsurpassable because expressiveness reigned throughout the work. Furthermore, his sound and the use of the pedals were remarkable. The clarity of form, the clean playing and the high artistic level that prevailed in every movement captured the public that listened with rapt attention. More here.
