“Friedrich Gulda belongs to the irrational sort, whose threatening extinction is a great loss to the world” (Manfred Gräter, WDR). After years of virtual abstinence from the classical music business – Gulda cursed at its protagonists being “scheißreaktionäre Künstlerlemuren“ (reactionary monkeys) – the lateral thinker returned to the concert stage in 1981. This recital from the Amerikahaus in Munich, which he combined with concerts in Milan and Paris, features Friedrich Gulda in a black sweatshirt, playing works by his personal favourite Mozart – in a version specially for purists. Gulda presents his crystal-clear interpretations of the sonatas with his personally unique spirit and his indisputable virtuosity and musical tactfulness. His live-presence is, as always, a guarantor for a marvellous piano experience: a successful return of an “irrational” musical genius to his roots.
