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

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.

Né à Tarnopol (l’actuelle Ternopil ukrainienne), Karol Rathaus reçut sa formation musicale à Berlin et à Vienne. En 1938, il gagna New York où il passa le restant de ses jours. De style néoclassique, sa Kujawiak (une danse polonaise ternaire) est marquée par une mélodie extrêmement chromatique et flexueuse.

Der in Tarnopol (jetzt Ternopil, Ukraine) geborene Karol Rathaus erhielt seine musikalische Ausbildung in Berlin und Wien. 1938 ging der Komponist nach New York, wo er den Rest seines Lebens verbrachte. Charakteristisch für Rathaus’ neoklassizistischen Kujawiak (ein polnischer Tanz im Tripeltakt) ist seine höchst chromatische und gewundene Melodie.
