Notes & Reviews:

Throughout his career, Gerhard Oppitz has been recognized for his deep understanding of the piano works of the great German Romantics, especially Beethoven and Schubert. This fourth installment of Oppitz performing the major piano works of Schubert includes the unfinished Sonata in E minor, D 566, whose fourth movement has either been lost or was never composed. In all the works on this program, the inimitable Gerhard Oppitz delivers his trademark intelligent, emotionally charged performances.

The Christmas Oratorio is one of Bach's most joyous and popular masterworks. Conceived as a series of six cantatas to be performed during the Christmas season, Bach drew upon his treasure trove of secular cantatas for inspiration, skilfully adapting them, in addition to composing several stunning new movements to capture every aspect of the Christmas story in sound. And what a radiant sound it is! The glorious voices of the Stuttgart Hymnus Chorknaben ring out in a superlative performance that the Esslinger Zeitung praised: "With nearly a hundred youthful voices joined in song, Bach's Christmas Oratorio never sounded more radiant!"
