SCHULHOFF, E.: Piano Works, Vol. 2 - 5 Pittoresken / Piano Sonata No. 2 / 2 Studien / Musik fur Klavier / Esquisses de jazz (Weichert)
Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff assimilated the influence of jazz with genuinely distinctive results. The Fünf Pittoresken absorb both Dada and Scott Joplin whilst more classicist influences, such as Ravel, suffuse the Second Piano Sonata. Esquisses de Jazz (1927) is perhaps his most outstanding jazz-influenced piece—a perfect synthesis of dance rhythms, wit and irony.
