Notes & Reviews:

Unlike most of the "Holocaust composers" murdered by the Nazis, Schulhoff was already a mature artist when the Nazis came to power in Germany. He had toured internationally as a pianist, and his compositions were published by the prominent Universal Edition company. Fortunately for us, in 1928 the German Polydor label invited Schulhoff to record a selection of his solo piano music. For the remainder of his life, economic and political conditions prevented Schulhoff from making any further recordings. But at least we have these.

In recent decades, his music has become increasingly popular in the concert halls and recording studios of the world. It is now possible to acquire recordings of most of Schulhoff's music. However, until now, only about a third of Schulhoff's small discography as a pianist has been available to modern audiences. Now, thanks to the cooperation of the International Piano Archives at Maryland and the OREL Foundation, along with the audio restoration work of Mark Obert-Thorn, all of Schulhoff's known recordings are included in a new CD release from Parnassus.
