„so what?!“ – Friedrich Gulda
This LOFT production was co-produced with the BR and ORF and is a comprehensive portrait of Friedrich Gulda, pianist of the century and „enfant terrible“ of the classical music establishment. We have interwoven archive material dating from his earliest youth right up to his last months into an overall picture, which can rightly be regarded as a worthy legacy of this „scandalous“ character of the music world. Respecting Gulda’s ban on a public obituary, we have entirely abstained from any off-commentaries. The entire narration of the portrait originates from Friedrich Gulda, either from himself directly, or narrated by his „alter ego“ Ulrich Mühe. Simply a „must“ for all those wishing to experience the last „enfant terrible“ of the classical music establishment in all his facets.
