Presented by the Colburn School’s Ziering-Conlon Initiative for Recovered Voices, this four-part original multimedia series led by James Conlon delves into the life and music of Erwin Schulhoff (1894–1942), a fascinating, prolific, and multi-faceted composer.

As a young Czech composer, Schulhoff absorbed the musical trends and techniques of his time. However, his experience as a frontline soldier in World War I caused him to re-examine the artist’s role in society, leading Schulhoff to explore new and provocative approaches.
