Friedrich Gulda Diabelli Variations Limited Vinyl LP

"Friedrich Gulda, the interpreter of the Diabelli Variations on this recording, was born in Vienna in 1930, studied with Seidlhofer and was an international celebrity at the age of twenty. His repertoire includes piano works from every . age and his concert tours have taken him all over the world. Gulda is a universal pianist who masters the most difficult pieces in piano Iiterature and is never known to give a mediochre performance, whether of Bach, Debussy, Beethoven or of his own jazz pieces. In his outstanding book “Great Pianists of our Time”, Joachim Kaiser deals very critically with the phenomenon of Friedrich Gulda. Despite a number of doubts which the prominent music and theatre critic expresses, particularly in connection with Gulda's support for jazz: and his views on the interpreting artist, he praises his great musical and technical gifts: “Gulda's remarkable qualities take him far beyond mere virtuosity and the capacity for “brillante” piano playing. And elsewhere: “Gulda plays the most articulate, fascinating, natural and purest Beethoven of the century. The method and the precision with which he phrases not only the upper voice but also every detail of the accompaniment; the calm gesture of his touch, the temperamental decisiveness with which his hands leave the keyboard: points such as these, where the technical and spiritual structure of the music demands particular emphasis, present him with no problems.

Anyone who has heard Gulda's interpretation of the Diabelli Variations will have nothing to add to this!"
