Notes & Reviews:

Even as the young Friedrich Gulda had begun to establish himself as a masterful interpreter of Beethoven, he would frequently moonlight as a jazz musician. And for the remainder of his career, he walked between two worlds - which, in those unenlightened times, made him the target of elitist criticism. The current program comes from Friedrich Gulda's 1959 recital at the Schwetzingen Festival. By this time Gulda's reputation as a modern, provocative, technically infallible Beethoven player was secure - as was his disdain for convention and authority. Undoubtedly, this is a concert experience of a one of the 20th century's most individualistic artists as it is rarely seen.

"Op. 110 was something of a signature work for Gulda, and the excellent mono engineering conveys the pianist's warm, communicative, and well integrated interpretation to more attractive sonic effect than in his two Decca studio versions. Gulda fans need no further recommendation." -ClassicsToday
