Cradle Song
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
