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.

By the early 1920s, the jazzy syncopations of American dance music had taken Europe by storm. Schulhoff embraced this new energy, incorporating it into his own compositions with a fervor that was unmatched by any of his contemporaries.
