Notes & Reviews:

Gary Graffman belongs to that incredible flowering of great American virtuosos who burst onto the public scene in the 1940s & '50s. He was born in NY in 1928 to Russian Jewish emigres and studied with Serkin & Horowitz. Working with conductors such as Szell, Bernstein & Munch (here at his peak), Graffman's genius sounds as startlingly fresh and vivid today as it did 50 years ago. Two of his star pupils are Yuja Wang & Lang Lang.
