FRIEDRICH GULDA - PIANIST

Artistic autographed 3 x 5 double-weight original photograph of the Austrian piano virtuoso in concert and signed with a white pastel.

Gulda (1930-2000) was born in Vienna and studied with Felix Pazofsky prior to his enrollment at the Vienna Conservatory where he studied with Bruno Seidlhofer. (Seidlhofer also taught among others; Nelson Friere, Martha Argerich and Rudolf Buchbinder.) In 1946 he won the Geneva International Piano Concourse and his career began in earnest.  He embarked on a two year tour of Europe from 1947-1948, South Africa and South America in 1949. Equally at home in the classical, particularly Romantic and jazz piano repertoire, he concertized extensively in both disciplines. We suspect this photograph is of a classical recital as he typically dressed down for his jazz recitals. There are numerous films of Gulda performing on YouTube and he is a lot of fun to watch as well as listen.

A great image!
