Biography

Edith Picht-Axenfeld (Freiburg im Breisgau, 1 January 1914 – Hinterzarten, 19 April 2001) was a German pianist and harpsichordist.

She started her concert career in 1935, and took part two years later in the third Fryderyk Chopin Competition, where she was awarded the 6th prize; this launched her career. After World War II Picht-Axenfeld performed at an intercontinental level, was active as a chamber musician and recorded for labels such as Deutsche Grammophon, Philips and Erato. RCA released an LP with Chopin's Etudes op. 10 and op. 25 with Picht-Axenfeld. She taught at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg im Breisgau until 1979.

Influence as a Teacher

Many pianists but also composers like Manfred Stahnke explicitly mention her as a important influence.

Recordings

As she was dedicated expert her 1968 recording of the Goldberg Variations is often considered as a point of reference and there obviously is still a "fanbase" that has uploaded many full albums to YouTube.
