Program notes

The Salzburg Festival played host to three remarkable musicians on the same stage for its 1989 edition. Joe Zawinul, a true pioneer of the keyboard, who played with Miles Davis before going on to found Weather Report, a forerunner in jazz fusion; Herbie Hancock, another Miles alumnus and 14 Grammy-winning veteran who also had a big hand in the advent of fusion as well as post bop, funk and electro; and Friedrich Gulda, a giant of a jazz-classical pianist who first met Zawinul as a teenager in Austria and played clandestine jazz with him, "forbidden" music that was prohibited by the government during WW2.
