Gitti Pirner gave her first piano recital at the age of seven. She made her debut with Mozart’s Piano Concerto in A major (KV 488) at the age of eight. When she played the same concert in a West German city at the age of twelve, the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung referred to her as an "artistic sensation".

Gitti Pirner studied in Munich, Rome, and Geneva under Erik Then-Berg, Guido Agustini, and Louis Hiltbrand. Wilhelm Kempff’s courses were an exceptional source of inspiration for her.

On her way from pianistic wunderkind to mature artistic personality, Gitti Pirner was awarded the First Prize at the International Music Competition in Geneva. In Munich, she was awarded the prize for interpretation.

She gave concerts with conductors such as Sergiu Celibidache, Rudolf Kempe, Helmuth Rilling, and Franz Welser-Möst.

Piano recitals and orchestra concerts lead the pianist to European, Korean, and Japanese metropolises.

In addition to her solo performances, the artist passionately dedicates herself to chamber music and Lied accompaniment.

Live recordings with the Munich Philharmonic conducted by Sergiu Celibidache are available at the Bayerischer Rundfunk. FARAO classics have published a CD recording of all piano sonatas by Mozart.

The pianist was a juror at numerous international competitions, such as the ARD Music Competition. Today, Gitti Pirner holds a professorship at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich.
