Notes and Editorial Reviews

...I can't remember having heard Graffman in Chopin and I found I kept jotting down notes about how extraordinarily well he plays this concerto... Graffman produces some marvellous pianism and I was left full of admiration for his playing. In the Mendelssohn he plays with great style and with the brilliance this agreeable, if not very remarkable, piece wants.

-- Gramophone [4/1966, reviewing the original LP release]
