Notes & Reviews:

Gerhard Oppitz was born in Frauenau, in the Bavarian Forest, in 1953. At the age of five, he began to play piano and debuted with a performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto in D minor when he was eleven. His formal training included concentration on the works of Beethoven under the legendary Wilhelm Kempff. In 1977, he was awarded first prize at the Artur Rubinstein Competition in Israel. Throughout his distinguished career, Oppitz has established his deep understanding of Beethoven's idiom and now brings a lifetime of experience to commit these works to disc.
