This is a programme not of jazz music but of music inspired by jazz in some way. Schoof and Schnyder are jazz musicians, as is Previn, who is better known as a conductor. Tansman fled from Europe to the USA during the Second World War and became involved with jazz musicians. Petrovics’s piece whimsically mixes elements of blues and jazz with dodecaphony. Schulhoff was one of the first classical composers to be influenced by jazz, and he also performed jazz as a pianist in addition to his own works and other contemporary music.
