Many of the present recordings, taken from the Gulda family archives, seemed to have been meant for private access and documentation only. With their resurrection . . . we may bear witness to the pianist's own "dramma giocoso" and ecstatic evolution in his kinship with that musical master whom Gulda had dubbed "the World Champion". Highly recommended!

. . . [tatsächlich empfindet und hört man Guldas] ganze Liebe aus jeder Note auf den zehn CDs heraus . . . Herzstück der Box sind die "Gulda Tapes" . . . [darin spielte er die Sonaten ein und spielte sie so,] dass sie immer noch wie eine Mozart-Offenbarung klingen. So direkt, so vital, so ernsthaft und verstanden, gehen die Sonaten selten unter die Haut. Immer noch unerreicht sind die vier Klavierkonzerte, die mit den Wiener Philharmonikern unter Abbado Mitte der 1970er-Jahre aufgenommen wurden. Eine Entdeckung an hinreißender Spielfreude: Das Klavierkonzert Nr. 17, KV 453 unter Paul Angerer aus 1960 . . . Kurz: Es geht einem das Herz auf -- die Paradiesesleiter ist hier wirklich nah!

L'intelligence, la douceur badine et pourtant sincère et si juste de ses Mozart éblouissent ici dans ce coffret . . . 51 années d'une carrière où le pianiste pose clairement l'enjeu d'une vie d'interprète: jouer c'est exprimer et aussi provoquer . . . Il est resté depuis sa disparition un phénomène inégalé, le pur artiste défiant l'ordinaire, le conforme, le normé.

. . . ["Mozart Tapes"] sur un Bösendorfer avec une liberté d'allure assez vivifiante . . . Beaucoup découvriront ici -- raretés de choix -- quatre concertos londoniens des années 1950 . . . Plus qu'une somme, trois stades mozartiens, tous surprenants, balisant la route d'un artiste qui n'a jamais cru à l'idée de "référence".
