Music and revolution of Erwin Schulhoff: from Dada to “The Communist Manifesto”

Abstract
The article concerns the Czech composer and pianist Erwin Schulhoff (1894 – 1942). His fate is typical for the second generation of the representatives of the New music who started their career after the First World War. Unlike the pre-war avant-garde the younger generation wasn’t hiding its left-wing views which were often being associated with the “Musikbolschewismus”.
