Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pavlos Hatzopoulos was born the son of Greek immigrants near Stuttgart, Germany in 1964 and started to learn the piano at three years of age. He made his first public appearance solo only several years later. He studied piano at the music colleges in Stuttgart and Würzburg from 1982 onwards. In 1984, a fracture in his right index finger appeared to have ended his prospects of a solo career. After two and a half years' recuperation, though, he resumed and successfully completed his studies, attaining the master class diploma for soloists. During his studies he took a close interest in the background story and interpretation of musical works. On this basis, he developed a form of lecture-concerts in which he takes his audience on a Read more musical journey of discovery, giving them new insights into classical works and using the music to communicate ethical values ??and other messages. The ideas he explains and the combination of accomplished elocution with expressive and virtuosic piano-playing distinguish him as one of the most extraordinary pianists of our time. Read less
