Overview

The piano is a percussion instrument; depressing a key sends a hammer to strike a string. Given this method of producing a tone, it's remarkable how velvety soft the instrument can sound, depending of course on the music being played, the quality of the instrument, and the pianist's skill. This recital demonstrates just how sweetly a piano can sing, with a lilting waltz by Brahms, a romantic reverie by Schumann, a tender lullaby by Grieg, a melancholy prelude by Chopin, and other lyrical miniatures. Renowned German pianist Gerhard Oppitz gives sensitive yet poised performances that reveal the music's intimate melodic warmth.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Piano for Relaxation collects Gerhard Oppitz's renditions of soothing classical piano pieces by Chopin, Faure, Brahms, and others. Ravel's "Pavane por une Infante Defunte," Mendelssohn's "Spring Song (From Song Without Words, Op. 62)," and Liszt's "Consolation No. 3: Consolation No. 5" are some of the highlights of this gentle but engaging album.
