Piano Class with Paul Gulda

With the start of the winter semester, Paul Gulda will take over one of the piano classes, marking another sign of his commitment to the conservatory named after his father.
"We are excited to now move from the conceptual phase into the real implementation of the vision. The passing on of the fire that was conjured up in music as well as words in June, now it can really begin" said Paul Gulda.
The versatile pianist and chamber musician will also set impulses for improvised music in interdisciplinary events and courses at the "Friedrich Gulda School of Music Vienna", underlining and exposing  the spirit and the mission of this unique conservatory.
