The first release of a concert featuring 56-year old Friedrich Gulda and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra at the Munchner Klaviersommer 1986 is truly legendary. Gulda plays and simultaneously conducts Mozart's Piano Concertos Nos. 20 and 26 like no one ever had before.

The charismatic and exceptional pianist Gulda turned to "Mr. Mozart", as he was accustomed to calling the Austrian composer with Viennese reverence, quite late in his career, only to dedicate himself to Mozart with heart and soul and study his music right up to the end of his life. In this dedication he was cautious to avoid any kind of sentiment, anything phony or simple sing-song.
