Gary Graffman, 19,
Shows High Skill
In Taking Program
By Elena de Sayn
A two-hour program, designed to
shown endurance as well as artistic
ability, was given last night by Gary
Graffman, pianist, in the Phillips
Gallery. The only regional contest
ant of the Rachmaninoff Fund, Inc.,
whose attainment came up to the
rigorous standards set by the foun
dation, tills 19-year-old virtuoso,
winner over 21 competitors, can look
hopefully Into the future.
Highly endowed by nature with
everything that goes into the mak
ing of an outstanding public per
former, Mr. Graffman displayed
extraordinary skill at his Washing
ton debut. The Phillips Gallery is
due credit far giving its patrons an
opportunity to become acquainted
with such an unusually fine talent.
As comparisons go, it is not out
of the ordinary to hear an accom
plished technician under 20. This
generation boasts of a number of
teen-agers who have a remarkable
mechanical prowess. The difference
between many of those and Mr.
Graffman lies in the latter’s having
already learned the precepts which
place him in the much smaller cate
gory of interpreters.
xi wouia oe uni air 10 nis leacner,
Isabelle Vengerova, to maintain that
Mr. Graffman's Ideas of style and
musical contents are all his own.
One could hardly expect them to be.
But for having cultivated the mu
nificent gifts bestowed on him by
nature and for asslmulatlng his
teacher’s musical Ideas to the de
gree of being able to give them out
so naturally as his own, he fully de
serves the success which has come
his way. "
It was a treat to hear Beethoven’s
"Waldstein” sonata played with
such a rare perfection of dynamics,
ranging from the faintest pianissimo
to a full, assertive fortissimo, and
to follow the well-planned distribu
tion of light and shade, combined
with many minute effects. Perhaps
the most unusual of all was the per
fection of detail in Chopin’s "Noc
turne in D flat Major, op. 27, No. 2,”
more difficult to attain for being de
signed on a smaller scale. Moving
within a steady rhythmical frame,
so often distorted by less artistically
competent players, this exquisite
number fully displayed Mr. Graff
man’s potentialities in cantabile
playing. For bringing out the tonal
and stylistic beauty of the selection,
the artist should receive special
commendation. "Etude In F Major,
op. 10 No. 8” and “Ballade in A fiat
op. 47” by the same composer bore
also the stamp of a thorough affin
ity with Chopin’s intentions.
Greater abandon characterized
the performance of Schumann’s
"Camaval op. 7,” a youthful work,
naturally more compatible to a
young person. There was less of
self-imposed discipline and more
elan. Yet, Mr. Graffman's perform
ance of the five works in the first
part of the program, prefaced by
Bach’s "Prelude and Fugue in B flat
minor,’’ seemed by far more inter
esting. Barber’s "Two Excursions”
from op. 20 and Prokofleff’s "Sonata
No. 3 op. 28” completed a taxing
program, which was enthusiastically
received by a large audience.
