Info for Beethoven, Scriabin & Martinu: Piano Sonatas



“Grandseigneur at the Piano”: The pianist Josef Bulva, born in 1943 in Brno, has been an eminent virtuoso and outstanding artistic personality since his early youth. Already at the beginning of his career, he enthused the experts by his stupendous technique that has remained a landmark of his interpretation. Yet virtuosity has never been a matter for its own sake to him, it goes along with his analytical musicality. The knowledge about structures of a composition – he compiled it in collaboration with composers – is a further milestone of Bulva’s unique interpretation. The professional music world celebrates him as the “Pianist of the Scientific Age”.

After a thirteen-year time-out of artistic activities, due to a severe injury of his left hand, Josef Bulva inaugurated his comeback on the concert stage. The TV stations ARD and RTL made films about his life, several other TV stations showed portraits about his life work.

Josef Bulva writes pianistic history, since he, “the Pianist among the Pianists”, uses the middle pedal, ( sostenuto pedal ) of piano in order to attain finest disclosure of music structures – that is why in his interpretation “famous compositions sound in new apparel”. Thus, the STEINWAY patent from 1874 gaines, after years of little attention, the acknowledgment and reputation it deserves.

In countermove STEINWAY produced for Bulva his concert grand piano – the well known No. 582 310 – that comes on the scene without a peer in sound and mechanical idiosyncrasy, both audible and visible on DVD produced by RCA, named “The Sound of 582 310“.

The legendary record’s company RCA, today owned by SONY, has secured exclusive rights on cooperation with the formerly committed virtuoso and already produced new CDs under the RCA RED SEAL label, on which Bulva plays works by Beethoven, Chopin and Szymanowski. In spring 2015, RCA honored Josef Bulva by editing and releasing a double CD with his interpretation of Franz Liszt’s compositions, he recorded from 1960 to 2014. On 2016 followed DVD named “The Sound of 582 310“ that mirrors the property of Bulva’s famous grand concert piano.
