Erwin Schulhoff: Jazz Inspired Works For Piano

Books | Piano

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Composer: Edwin Schulhoff
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This edition contains five of Erwin Schulhoff's jazz-inspired Piano cycles with a total of thirty-five pieces ranging from the relatively easy Esquisses de jazz (1927) to the fairly demanding Cinq études de jazz (1926).

This is the first Urtext edition of this music and draws on the original prints comparing them with the surviving handwritten sources. Errors have been corrected and distinctive traits of Schulhoff’s notation retained.

Erwin Schulhoff was a German-speaking composer who was born in Prague in 1894 and died in the Nazi concentration camp in Wülzburg (Bavaria) in 1942. In the 1920s he returned to his native Prague to teach at the local conservatory. His compositions, with their blend of traditional genres, jazz syncopations, dance rhythms and moderately expanded tonality, were fully attuned to the tenor of the times.

  • First Urtext edition of these jazz-inspired works for Piano.
  • Foreword (Ger/Cz/Eng) and Critical Commentary (Eng).
