About

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 fugato reveals indebtedness to Debussy, with whom Schulhoff studied.

A prize-winner at the Busoni, German Chopin and Schubert competitions, Caroline Weichert’s double victory at the ‘Young Artists’ Concerts’ competition, organized by the German Musikrat, was decisive in launching her career. She has appeared regularly as a soloist with orchestras such as the Baden-Baden Philharmonic, Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie and the Telekom-Orchester, and has given numerous recitals and chamber music concerts, showing a particular affinity for lesser known repertoire. She received a Discobole award from the Académie du Disque Français for her recording début featuring works by Shostakovich in 2007.
