Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gerhard Oppitz is among the most famous living exponents of the German Romantic piano music. He loves performing the great cyclical works such as Beethoven or Schubert in multi-night marathons. Following his widely acclaimed recording of the 32 Beethoven sonatas, he is now exploring the lyrical world of Franz Schubert's works for piano, with this being the eighth volume.

In addition to his unquestioned mastery of the standard romantic canon, Oppitz has embraced much contemporary music as part of his repertoire. World premières and newly composed works often find their way onto a program by Oppitz, as was the case in his fascinating 2011 recording of 20th century Japanese piano works.
