Together with Joerg Demus and Paul Badura-Skoda, Gulda formed what became known as the "Viennese troika".
In 1982, Gulda teamed up with jazz pianist Chick Corea and wrote a Prelude and Fugue with a theme suggesting swing. ( Keith Emerson performed it on Emerson, Lake & Palmer's The Return of the Manticore ). In addition, Gulda composed "Variations on The Doors' 'Light My Fire'".
Gulda is widely regarded as one of the most outstanding piano players of the 20th century.
