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.
"Caroline Weichert is a magnificent pianist, and to hear Schulhoff played at this level is revelatory. The recording is of the top rank, delivering believable presence. Fascinating repertoire, expertly performed and recorded."
