5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Composer Who Nobody Has Heard Of 19 Nov 2007
By C. Hall - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a fan of ragtime and ragtime-inspired music and happen to have discovered Schulhoff not too long ago. Schulhoff was a virtuoso pianist and everything he writes is evident of this. I believe that composers who cannot play the piano well are basically incapable of writing quality piano music. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff.....they were all first-rate keyboardists and their music proves this. The only reason Schulhoff has faded into obscurity is because he died in a concentration camp during the Holocaust. I am sure that had he not died this way and had lived on to a ripe old age (he was born in 1894), he would have become as well-known as Bartok or Stravinsky. In fact, he was a better pianist than either Bartok or Stravinsky and I believe his piano music is better as well. Kathryn Stott does a wonderful job playing this difficult but exciting music! Schulhoff is now my favorite composer nobody has heard of. I highly recommend this CD and Schulhoff's music in general (he also has chamber music, symphonies, and an opera) to pianists willing to venture out and expose themselves to some unduly neglected literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars energy and fun 19 Aug 2012
By Stanley Crowe - Published on
Format:Audio CD
"Energy is Eternal Delight," says the Devil, in Blake's "Marriage of Heaven and Hell," and if you believe that, you'll love the jazz- and ragtime-inspired piano music of Erwin Schulhoff, an avant-garde Czech composer who died in a concentration camp in 1942 at the age of 48. The excellent and adventurous English pianist Kathryn Stott has the measure of this music and brings it vividly to life. Schulhoff unapologetically liked American jazz, blues, and ragtime -- the "new" dance music of its time, as Schulhoff saw it -- and he incorporated features of it into the music on this disc. It's not that he writes dance music himself but rather extracts rhythmic and harmonic elements into something of his own. The faster movements have a tocatta-like quality that has affinities with some of Prokofiev's faster pieces, but they're more fun -- they have little rhythmic and motivic surprises that make it seem less driven and mechanical than Prokofiev sometimes sounds. If you're open to this kind of music, I can't imagine you not enjoying this.
