Notes & Reviews:

Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff absorbed the influence of jazz with genuinely distinctive results. The Funf Pittoresken reflect both Dada and Scott Joplin while more classicist influences, such as Ravel, suffuse the Second Piano Sonata. Esquisses de Jazz is perhaps his most outstanding Jazz-influenced piece - a perfect synthesis of dance rhythms, wit, and irony.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Musik für Klavier from 1920 is another suite, this time barely scraping the jazz influence. It is a fascinating set of movements, including a set of theme and variations, and a more colorful style of writing that does not escape the world of the impressionists. His Ravellian Sonata 2 from 1926 finds its mellifluous home completely in the classical realm. It is a joy to listen to. Its four movements are to be treasured. Weichert's fine playing is heard in outstanding sound, and the notes add to our appreciation of this music. I definitely will be seeking out the first volume.
