Threnody
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
A Polish immigrant, Felix Labunski relocated to America in 1936 and settled in Cincinnati. He was especially indebted to Paderewski, who, following their meeting in Paris in 1928, funded the remainder of his studies with Dukas and Boulanger. In addition to his Threnody, a very intense piece with a beautiful cantabile middle section, Labunski also dedicated a symphonic poem entitled In memoriam to his mentor.
