Cradle Song

composer
based on the Peruvian lullaby Alarroro rito; published by Boosey & Hawkes, New York, in the 1942 volume Homage to Paderewksi

 
Like Schelling, Sigismond Stojowski had the distinction of being one of the few pianists to have studied with Paderewski over a long period of time. Zygmunt, as he was called in Polish, studied in Cracow and Paris. He moved to New York in 1905 to be on the founding faculty of the Institute of Musical Art. Stojowski’s Cradle Song is a Spanish-American berceuse based on the lullaby Alarroro rito which Stojowski learned from his Peruvian wife, Luisa. In fact, it was thanks to Paderewski that Zygmunt and Luisa first met.

Comme Schelling, Sigismond Stojowski fut parmi les rares pianistes à avoir eu le privilège de longuement étudier avec Paderewski. Après avoir étudié à Cracovie et à Paris, Zygmunt, de son prénom polonais, partit en 1905 à New York, où il intégra la faculté de l’Institute of Musical Arts. Son Cradle Song est une berceuse hispano-américaine fondée sur Alarroro rito, une berceuse qu’il tenait de Luisa, son épouse péruvienne, d’ailleurs rencontrée grâce à Paderewski.

Wie Schelling zeichnet sich auch Sigismond Stojowski als einer der wenigen Pianisten aus, der lange Zeit bei Paderewski studiert hat. Zygmunt, wie er auf Polnisch heißt, hat in Krakau und Paris studiert. Er ging 1905 nach New York und gehörte zu den Gründungsmitgliedern des Institute of Musical Art. Stojowskis Cradle Song ist ein spanisch-amerikanisches Wiegenlied; es basiert auf einem anderen Wiegenlied, Alarroro rito, das Stojowski durch seine peruanische Frau Luisa kennengelernt hatte. Tatsächlich war es dank Paderewski zur ersten Begegnung von Zygmunt und Luisa gekommen.
