Notes and Editorial Reviews

As a student of Wilhelm Kempff, and according to his own inner inclination, Gerhard Oppitz has been praised worldwide as a performer of Romantic piano works, especially those by German composers. He also loves to perform the large scale cyclical works such as Beethoven or Schubert on several consecutive evenings. "Variations" could be the theme of this 10th volume in his recordings of Schubert's piano works. It presents as it's central work the "Wanderer Fantasy", where in the second movement are a set of variations on the famous song "The Wanderer" D 489. Oppitz achieves here a momentous emotional climax in this performance. Also included is the comparably intense Piano Sonata D 784; these larger works Read more perfectly frame to delightful sets of variations; the Variation on a Waltz by Diabelli, D 718 and the "Hüttenbrenner" Variations D 576. - Hanssler Classic Read less
