Notes & Reviews:

With the 12th installment of his grand tour of the piano works of Franz Schubert, the internationally renowned pianist Gerhard Oppitz now concludes his journey. Included here are the Sonata in D Major, D. 850, the Rondo in E Major D 506 and the 12 Waltzes D 969. Gerhard Oppitz understanding of the musical depth of Schubert's creations is without peer, all the more effective for its unobtrusive understatement. The "heavenly lengths" of this composer are a challenge for some artists, who transform transcendence into tedium but not Gerhard Oppitz. Under his hands, he is able to draw out the narrative logic of each large-scale Sonata while engaging the smaller pieces for what they are: jewels of pianistic invention.
