In memoriam Paderewski

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

Born in Berlin of Cuban ancestry, Joaquín Nin-Culmell moved to the USA in 1939. He was a prolific composer for the guitar, writing some 100 pieces. In Memoriam Paderewski is another short mazurka, and Nin-Culmell adds a bit of Latin American flavour by the use of syncopation in the second half of the piece. This is achieved by the right hand playing in 3/4 while the left hand simultaneously plays in 6/8.

Compositeur d’ascendance cubaine né à Berlin, Joaquín Nin-Culmell, émigré aux États-Unis en 1939, écrivit énormément pour la guitare—une centaine de pièces. In Memoriam Paderewski est, là encore, une courte mazurka, rendue légèrement latino-américaine par le recours à la syncope, dans la seconde moitié de l’œuvre. La main droite joue alors à 3/4 pendant que la gauche joue à 6/8.

Der in Berlin geborene Joaquín Nin-Culmell, Sohn kubanischer Eltern, ging 1939 in die USA. Er komponierte rund 100 Werke für Gitarre. In Memoriam Paderewski ist eine weitere kurze Mazurka; Nin-Culmell fügt mit der Synkopierung in der zweiten Hälfte des Stückes noch einen Hauch Lateinamerika hinzu. Die rechte Hand spielt in 3/4, die linke hingegen gleichzeitig in 6/8.
