Once you open this album on Qobuz, you are in danger of being thrown into an abyss of perplexity. But once you get over the initial surprise, you may find yourself asking if you've been had: if you're the butt of a joke by Friedrich Gulda, who has pawned his concert Steinway for a badly-tuned Japanese koto. But it's "just" Gulda playing Bach on a clavichord that seems to be buckling under pressure or thanks to funny sound engineering. And then, slowly, it works its charms on us, and we are willing participants in a sound-test by Friedrich Gulda on a mean instrument that he seems to be really beating up on, distorting the strings, trying to get at sounds that the humble clavichord really isn't made for. It's as if we've snuck in to grin at the sight of this musician playing extracts from the Well-Tempered Clavier on an instrument which is anything but. Recorded at home, or at a concert at the end of the 1970s, these records, now out in the light of day, bear witness to the pure-musical research of an artist who has never stopped questioning and pushing at the boundaries of musical convention. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Friedrich Gulda, who first attempted to play in a jazz setting in the mid-'50s after firmly establishing his classical career, is on far stronger ground on this Columbia LP recorded in early 1965. Gulda's chops are very much in evidence throughout the sessions. In spite of the fact that he had not previously worked with bassist Bob Cranshaw, the two hit it off immediately, while drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath had recently completed a tour with the pianist. His very deliberate approach to a standard like "I'll Remember April" is rather refreshing, while he's also up to the challenge of jazz works such as J.J. Johnson's "Lament" (played as a solo) and Jimmy Heath's waltz-time "Ineffable." Gulda's jaunty hard bop vehicle "The Horn and I" and his Art Tatum-like "Quartet" are among his more memorable compositions. Briefly available in the mid-'60s, this excellent album will not be easy to locate. ~ Ken Dryden
