Erwin Schulhoff went through many stages in his emergence as pianist and composer. Antonin Dvorák recommended the seven-year-old to the conservatory of his native city of Prague, then at 14 the boy moved to Leipzig to learn composition from Max Reger. While there, he gained valuable insights into the piano from Robert Teichmüller. In the last years of his course of study (from 1911) Schulhoff moved yet again, this time to the Cologne Conservatory, where his teachers were Fritz Steinbach for composition and Carl Friedberg for piano. Immediately upon graduating in 1913, Schulhoff succeeded in obtaining a few lessons from a normally student-shy Claude Debussy. Michael Rische´s commitment to the music of the twentieth century, however, quite clearly marks a contrast to his discoveries: the original or first premieres of piano concertos by George Antheil and Erwin Schulhoff, as well as recordings of other works in the “jazz influenced” style by Copland, Honegger, Gershwin and Ravel, have gained him an international reputation.
