Schulhoff’s 10 Klavierstücke (10 Piano Pieces) from 1919 reflect the influence of Arnold Schoenberg and the Second Viennese School. The Ironien (Ironies) for piano four-hands have the Dadaist, anti-establishment spirit of the great European cities of the 1920s. Though composed in free atonality, the cyclical Musik für Klavier in vier Teilen (Music for Piano in Four Parts) from 1920 has many of the characteristics of a Baroque suite, while the miniature 11 Inventionen für Klavier (11 Inventions for Piano) from 1921 emphasize a broad spectrum of sound colours. Schulhoff explored classical form and tradition in his Piano Sonata no.3 from 1927.
Born in Prague in 1894, Schulhoff – the son of German- Jewish parents and a staunch Communist – died of pneumonia in a concentration camp and his music fell into obscurity. That makes this recording all the more important as a document of the dazzlingly varied output of this remarkable composer from the period between the two world wars.
