Program Notes: Czech composer and pianist Erwin Schulhoff studied with Reger and Debussy. In 1918 he won the Mendelssohn Prize for composition. A versatile artist, Schulhoff's compositions have made references to Germanic Late Romanticism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Jazz, Neo-classicism, and traditional folk melodies.

The Third quartet in C major, called "Heroic" because of the solemnly heroic expression of the second theme of the first movement, is very close to the Fourth and Fifth Symphonies in thought and content. Even though no Russian melody is elaborated in this Quartet the second, slow movement in A minor is distinctly written in the Russian style.
