Review of Sunday´s Concert / Critica del Concierto del Domingo

¨Enrique Graf proved to be as excellent a collaborative artist as he is a soloist. His sound is full and capable of revealing through nuance, dynamics or phrasing, all the beauties of the scores. His technique is flawless and his spirit knows how to bond with each composer.¨

Review from the recital on August 28, 2014, International Piano Series at the Solis Theatre By Egon Friedler, Revista Sinfonica.

“Enrique Graf dio una lección de formidable garra pianística a pesar de un piano de sonido demasiado fuerte, áspero y desagradable. Ejecutó ni más ni menos que la sonata “Appassionata” de Beethoven y “Cuadros de una exposición” de Mussorgsky con la autoridad de un profundo conocedor de las obras y la sensibilidad y el refinamiento de un intérprete de honda sensibilidad”.

“Enrique Graf gave a lesson on piano playing in spite of a loud, rough and disagreeable piano. He played Beethoven’s “Appassionata” and “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Mussorgsky with authority, profound knowledge of the works, refinement and deep sensibility”.

Yesterday we lost one of the greatest pianists that ever existed.  For me she was always a reference. Her art will live forever in some of the great recordings that she left us. A few years ago I had the great honor of playing and recording the Poulenc 2 Piano Concerto with her. Here is a movement of that.
