Max Kowalski(1882-1956) was born in Kowal, Poland. His family moved the next year to Frankfort, Germany, where he grew up, studied and earned Doctorates in both Music and Law (his specialty was Copyrights). His teacher of compostition was Bernhard Sekles and voice, Alexander Heineman. In Germany from 1913 till 1931, Max Kowalski was a prolific composer of beautiful lieder in the Romantic style. Although he was Jewish, Max Kowalski wrote music of all styles and genres, from Japanese, Chinese, Danish, Arabic, French and that of many great German authors,he even wrote a Marienlieder in his Opus 12. He was friend to many other composers, artists and performers and every song cycle he wrote was quickly published until Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich took over the country. In the late 30''s Kowalski was very involved with the "Kulterbund" in Frankfort, Germany and his music continued to have popularity in their orchestral concerts. He is mentioned and highlighted by his presence at the last Kulturbund concert(1938) in Martin Goldsmith''s book entitled "The Inextinguishable Symphony". By the end of 1938, Kowalski was arrested and spent time in Buchenwald but within a month he was released and he fled to England where he spent the rest of his life teaching voice, singing in a Synagogue and making a humble living. Although no music of his was ever published again, he kept writing new works, 17 new song cycles in manuscripts which singers performed in concerts and on radio. Opus 1 is his first composition dated 1913 and first published by Leukart in Germany. It had been out-of-print many years until Dr. Walter Foster of Recital Publications in Huntsville, Texas took up the committment to bring as many of Max Kowalski''s song cycles to the public as possible. So far, 11 of his 17 previously published cycles have been reprinted.

1. Ich und Du
Wir träumten von einander Und sind davon erwacht, Wir leben, um uns zu lieben, Und sinken zurück in die Nacht. Du kamst aus meinem Traume, Aus deinem trat ich hervor Wir sterben, wenn sich eines im andern ganz verlor. Auf einer Lilie zittern Zwei Tropfen, rein und rund, Zerfließen in eins und rollen Hinab in des Kelches Grund.
1. I and you
We dreamed of each other and it awakened us; we live to love each other and drop back into the night. You stepped from my dream and I stepped from yours. We will die when one of us has become entirely lost in the other''s.

Was ist in deiner Seele,was ist in meiner Brust, das ich mich der befehle,das du mich lieben must?
Vom Haus, wo ich gewohnt un zart be hutet bin, ziehst du mich,wie der Mond nachtwandelnd,zu dir hin.
What is this force that touches me so. Is it a feeling of love in my breast? From my house, where I once was loved and comfortable, I am drawn to you like a wanderer through the night like the Moon draws the waves of the sea. German text by Ricarda Octavia Huch (1864-1947)
