Another great review in Pennsylvania: on April 15, 2013 the Butler Eagle said “Virtuoso Enrique Graf was the undeniable star of the evening. His appearance with the Butler Symphony was the ideal capstone to the season. Graf’s elegant interpretation of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 was enchanting. Graf and conductor Matthew Kraemer visually consulted each other to blend the solo instrument with the orchestra in excellent balance. The result was a completely satisfying finale to the evening’s musical tour the force and received a well deserved standing ovation.”
On January 29, 2013, Graf performed a sold-out benefit recital at the Hilton Head Country Club for the Hilton Head International Piano Competition. After music by Beethoven, Chopin and Tosar the audience had different dinner courses and wines from the countries where the composers came from. Afterwards, Graf spoke and answered questions on what it is like to judge competitions such as this one. It was a huge success.
