Erwin Schulhoff

  Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum
Introducing the Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff
Sigurjón Ólafsson Museum
the weekend 23rd and 24th of July 2022

Erwin Schulhoff (1894 − 1942) was a prolific and multi-faceted creative figure whose work embraced a full panoply of styles and influences. Like Kafka and Mahler, a German Jew in a Czech cultural milieu, the composer took full advantage of his “outsider looking in” status to forge a compelling musical personality. One of the earliest and most successful exponents of art music drawing on jazz, Schulhoff refracts multiple approaches of his time, from Dada to Expressionism, and from a distanced self-mockery to the stolid seriousness of Socialist Realism.
