Welcome to my website!

I recently gave a world premiere of a new piano concerto by John Carbon at the Barshinger Center in Pennsylvania. Here is the YouTube link. I hope you enjoy it! http://youtu.be/FEz6tnNbQ3Y 

I am pleased to announce the release of a new solo CD on Zimbel Records: John Carbon Piano Music Played by Steven Graff.

"In this recital of wall-to-wall premiere recordings, Graff plays Carbon with a comfortable authority, easily equal to the virtuosity of the Sonata, but with the experience and expressiveness necessary to communicate the timbral and textural nuances of the Spanish Lessons."
- Len Mullenger of MusicWeb International

You can also find my CD of contemporary American piano music on Centaur Records: Music From America’s First and Second Cities. It is a collection of contemporary piano music by composers from New York (Barber, Gershwin and Del Tredici) and Chicago (Muczynski, Sowerby and La Montaine).

"Pianist Steven Graff plays all of the preceding music with passion and no little flair. He has a fluid, natural sense of rhythm, especially notable in the Sowerby and Del Tredici. He is formidable, as well, in the widely played Gershwin and Barber..."
- Peter Burwasser, Fanfare Magazine
