Enrique Graf’s master classes in Miami and Montevideo coming up. They take place at the New World School of the Arts December 9 and 10 and at the School of Music at the University of Uruguay on December 14, 2013.
“Graf feels and understands this music and this style, the rhythmic tricks are so familiar to him as the most simple scale. He seemed to enjoy every detail of Gershwin’s original and ragged musical discourse.” Revista Sinfónica – August 2013. See Article.

A Remarkable Rendering of the Concerto in F
Graf´s phrasing had an untransferable swing which is not written in the score. He displayed beautiful sound, drive and spirit in perfect communication with conductor and orchestra. What happened last night at the Solis Theatre was an event that I can only compare to a performance by Ralph Votapek and Howard Mitchell over 40 years ago.

The Philharmonic in Laudable Concert
The highlight of the evening was without a doubt the appearance of Enrique Graf in Gershwin´s Concerto in F. He posesses an enormous ability to communicate to the audience, great magnetism and charisma, absolute control of the instrument and strength. The interpretation was brilliant from beginning to end. The orchestra played with full awareness that they were in front of one of the best uruguayan pianists of all times.
EL PAIS, 7/6/2013
Enrique Graf once again showed his brilliant technique and clear and beautiful sound in an intimate and personal version of the Concerto in F. The audience responded with a long and warm ovation.
