Erwin Schulhoff - Concerto for Piano & Small Orchestra Concerto Doppio for Flute, Piano, String Orchestra & Two Horns - Concerto for String Quartet and Wind Ensemble - Beethoven/Schulhoff, Rondo a capriccio - Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester - Capriccio 2014

I think every piece here (except for the Beethoven arrangement) has been included on one or more Schulhoff discs that I have posted in the past. Never mind that. This is one hell of a recording, and all three concertos here are handled masterfully. Not unlike the concertante works of Bohuslav Martinů, Schulhoff's concertos always dazzle and delight the senses - for me. ......Hopefully you agree! 

Because of time I am going to rely on any notes that I (hopefully) have added to past Schulhoff shares. Click on the keyword at the bottom if you'd like to check!

Enjoy this under-appreciated Czech master and all of his delightful and tuneful eccentricity!

Thank you for this. Schulhoff is always a delight, never tired of hearing his great works for orchestra.

Anon, if a great recording of Schulhoff's Opus 82 existed trust me I'd own it and share it! The few lps that were made years ago I never owned. The version of the 'Communist Manifesto' that's up on youtube is fantastic, I think it's the old Supraphon recording; wish they'd remaster and rerelease it!!

Hard to believe that such music has not been picked up yet by Naxos or dozens of other enterprising labels!
