Oppitz, 38, is a Bavarian pianist, winner of the 1977 Artur Rubinstein Competition in Israel. A professor at the Munich Conservatory, he is better known for his performances of contemporary music, but this splendid integral recording, The Complete Works for Solo Piano, is impressive Brahms playing on every level. Oppitz is perhaps more impressive in such big works as the three sonatas and the Handel Variations than in the delicate traceries of the late intermezzi and fantasies. But this is a small caveat. B+
