Paul Gulda was born in Vienna in 1961; he began to play the piano at the age of nine.
“My first teachers were Jazz pianists: Fritz Pauer and Roland Batik as well as my father, Friedrich Gulda, who inspired me with his absolute dedication towards music. Leonid Brumberg, longtime assistant of the great Heinrich Neuhaus, taught me the principles of the “Russian School”. At last, Rudolf Serkin gave me the gift of true goodness and support in the realm of music.“
Since 1982, Paul Gulda plays and appears internationally as a soloist, chamber player, improviser and composer. He devised and co-produced several programs combining music and literature, and even painting. Starting in 1998, he teaches regularly at masterclasses in many countries. From 2001-2003, he was guest professor at the Vienna Music University. He recorded about 20 CDs with a wide-ranging repertoire.
