Description
These utterly absorbing interpretations of piano works by two very different composers were recorded by Austrian pianist Friedrich Gulda in the early 1950s.

"Gulda has done a magnificent job with the First Concerto—he has made that curiously long and transitional work sound interesting to the ear all the way through…. I praise Gulda for the sympathy, skill, and musicianship that have enabled him to achieve the impossible. His excellently gay and literal way of playing the finale could not be bettered, and keeps the mind alert to the end."—Gramophone

"It's interesting to compare the recent glut of young pianists' fastidious interpretations of Chopin with these previously unreleased mid-fifties concert performances by the young Friedrich Gulda. There's a freedom to Gulda's approach which brings the music vividly to life, in a manner which would doubtless be frowned upon today—but then, he was the original 'terrorist pianist' with a taste for free jazz, who played with Chick Corea. Also included is a more disciplined 1954 studio recording of the Piano Concerto No 1."—The Independent
