published by Boosey & Hawkes, New York, in the 1942 volume Homage to Paderewksi

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.

Immigré polonais, Felix Labunski déménagea aux États-Unis en 1936 et choisit la ville de Cincinnati. Il était particulièrement redevable à Paderewski qui, suite à leur rencontre parisienne en 1928, avait financé la fin de ses études avec Dukas et Boulanger. Outre sa Threnody, pièce fort intense douée d’une splendide section centrale cantabile, il dédia à son mentor un poème symphonique intitulé In memoriam.

Der Pole Felix Labunski wanderte 1936 nach Amerika aus und lebte in Cincinnati. Er war Paderewski ganz besonders zu Dank verpflichtet, der nach ihrer Begegnung 1928 in Paris sein weiteres Studium bei Paul Dukas und Nadia Boulanger finanziert hatte. Außer Threnody, einem sehr dichten Stück mit einem schönen cantabile-Mittelteil, widmete Labunski seinem Mentor auch eine sinfonische Dichtung mit dem Titel In memoriam.
