Czech composer and pianist Erwin Schulhoff (1894-1942) was a prolific and multi-faceted creative figure whose work embraced a full panoply of styles and influences, and was one of the earliest and most successful exponents of art music drawing on jazz. Schulhoff brilliantly absorbed, transformed, and expressed many of the most significant and progressive creative urges of his age, from Dada to Expressionism, and from a distanced self-mockery to the stolid seriousness of Socialist Realism. He was also one of the generation of European musicians whose successful careers were prematurely terminated by the rise of the Nazi regime in Germany, and whose works have been rarely noted or performed. 
 
Undoubtedly one of the most versatile and imaginative composers of the last century, the fact that Erwin Schulhoff's life came to an abrupt end in a German internment camp in 1942 represents one of the great tragedies of Europe's barbaric recent past. Nevertheless, his catalogue of over 200 compositions includes some of the most fascinating, challenging, exciting, and moving music of the twentieth century. 
 
The three works on this disc were all written by Schulhoff in the 1920s, when his career was at its peak, and display the full range of the composer's colourful, expressive musical palette.
