Scores by Erwin Schulhoff with the stamp of the Theresienstadt ghetto

Erwin Schulhoff (1894 to 1942) came from a Jewish, upper-class, music-loving milieu. From 1924 Schulhoff lived with his wife Alice and son Petr in Prague, paying homage to the Viennese School of the Atonal, and traveling restlessly in Europe as an avant-garde pianist and improviser.
