Notes & Reviews:

This fourth release in a series of recordings of orchestral music by the Hungarian composer Ferenc Farkas (1905 - 2000) concentrates on his music for flute and strings, highlighting the characteristics that make his music so appealing: catchy tunes, transparent scoring, buoyant rhythms and a fondness for Baroque forms and folk-dances. Two other concertante pieces - featuring soprano and harpsichord - offer contrast.
