During his short life Erwin Schulhoff absorbed a wide range of musical styles. The jazz-inspired Partita includes witty takes on the tango, foxtrot and shimmy. Further synthesis comes in the Suite No 3, written for the left hand alone, which adapts folk and jazz influences in a bracingly novel way, while the Variations and Fugue reveals indebtedness to Debussy, with whom Schulhoff studied.

Auch bei Stücken wie der „Suite No. 3 for the left hand“ oder den über 20 Minuten langen Variationen über ein „Dorisches Thema“ greift die Conrad-Hansen-Schülerin (die heute selbst Dozentin an
