Kujawiak
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Born in Tarnopol (now Ternopil, Ukraine), Karol Rathaus received his musical training in Berlin and Vienna. In 1938 the composer moved to New York where he spent the rest of his life. Neoclassical in style, Rathaus’s Kujawiak (a Polish dance in triple metre) is characterized by its highly chromatic and sinuous melody.
