Saturday Night Music

Friedrich Gulda


  1. Fantastic evening!
    Although I do not understand German, I guessed Friedrich told the audience he was returning to play another Mozart Concerto. So I went to listen to Coronation. Same people on the front row, same orchestra but Friedrich in a white T-Shirt instead of black. And again the music was fabulous.
    Then, I decided to go back to your presentation of Mitsuko Uchida. She plays Mozart as much with her expressive face as with her fingers and direction.
    Fantastic evening. Thank you!

    1. Glad you enjoyed, Claude.
      Well, Friedrich told the audience that he supposed they would a) understand that he had become a bit sweaty, and that b) his dark clothes were surely fine for a D-minor concert, but not for D-major concert. Therefore, he asked for some minutes of patience during which he would quickly wash himself and change clothes.
