Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff assimilated the influence of jazz with genuinely distinctive results. The Fünf Pittoresken absorb both Dada and Scott Joplin whilst more classicist influences, such as Ravel, suffuse the Second Piano Sonata. Esquisses de Jazz (1927) is perhaps his most outstanding jazz-influenced piece—a perfect synthesis of dance rhythms, wit and irony.


Review By Arnt Cobbers,Klassik Newsletter,June 2013

Der Foxtrott ist ein kunstvoll komponierter Ragtime, der zweite Satz mit dem Titel Ragtime klingt nach Debussy und Satie, und im dritten der fünf Sätze, In futurum, erklingt anderthalb Minuten lang: nichts. Die Fünf Pittoresken op. 31 stammen nicht etwa von John Cage – Erwin Schulhoff schrieb sie 1919 im dada-bewegten Dresden. Der deutschsprachige Prager, der in den 20er Jahren auch eine Weile in Berlin lebte und 1942 als Jude und Kommunist im KZ umkam, komponierte eine faszinierend moderne, gänzlich undogmatische Musik, die zeitweise stark vom Jazz beeinflusst war. Die zweite Folge der Gesamtaufnahme von Caroline Weichert, Klavierprofessorin in Hamburg, ist ein überzeugendes Plädoyer für mehr Schulhoff. ©Klassik
