Friedrich Gulda

born: 16 May 1930
died: 27 January 2000
country: Austria

It would be difficult to think of a pianist as successful as Friedrich Gulda pursuing two completely different—and simultaneous—musical careers. Initially recognized and respected as an interpreter of the so-called core repertoire ranging from Bach to Debussy, he was bitten by the jazz bug in 1950 and was never the same again, producing a very large amount of music in that idiom, and performing with some of the greatest names, Joe Zawinul and Chick Corea among them.
