Josef Bulva is not a well-known pianist, but for those who do know of him, he is considered a technically disciplined, yet virtuosic and insightful musician. Bulva was disciplined even as a young student, and at his first public performances at the age of 13 was playing Mozart concertos and Liszt preludes. His teenage years were spent at conservatories as a state-sponsored student, resulting in Bulva being named a state soloist by the Czechoslovakian Socialist Republic and used somewhat as an advertisement for the country's culture through performances and recordings. In 1971, Bulva's career was interrupted by an accident that left him hospitalized for nearly a year. Afterward, while on his first tour outside of Czechoslovakia, he decided to emigrate to the West. He became a citizen of Luxembourg, living in Munich as a second home. Bulva was able to expand his audience through recordings on a number of labels and concert and radio appearances. His repertoire included the Romantic standards -- Liszt, Brahms, Chopin -- and Russian masterworks. However, his profile as an active musician was never as great as other performers, and over time his concertizing grew less frequent. Another accident in 1996 damaged Bulva's left hand to the point where everyone believed his career was over. Yet, in 2009, he returned to the stage and studio, and found a new audience, curious about this talented, but seemingly unknown performer.
