Schulhoff Erwin

Erwin Schulhoff (1894-1942) was a Czech composer and pianist. He studied piano at the Prague Conservatory and Vienna, composition with Max Reger in Leipzig, and with Carl Friedberg in Cologne. His earliest compositions were influenced by works of Richard Strauss and Claude Debussy. Wounded during World War I, Schulhoff became fond of socialist ideas, expressionism and dadaism in general and Berlin Dada movement in particular. In 1920s he discovered jazz and was drawn towards French neo-classicism and folk music upon his return to Prague.  
The following next 10 years were the most successful in his career. In 1928 he made his first recording for Polydor featuring his piano works. The decline of his career started in the early 1930s when his devotion to Marxism ideas became overwhelming. As a communist of Jewish heritage, he became very vulnerable after German occupation in 1938 and was arrested in 1941. Later he was sent to concentration camp where he died in 1942. Schulhoff's compositions cover almost every genre known at his time. Among his most important works: Concerto for Piano and Small Orchestra (Op.43), Symphonies No 2 and 5, string quartets, Concertino for flute, viola and double bass (WV 75) as well as various instrumental works.
