Description: As with previous albums in this now twelve-volume series, the music highlights the characteristics that make Farkas’ music so appealing: catchy tunes, transparent textures, buoyant rhythms, a fondness for Baroque forms and a taste for the folk-music of his native Hungary that marks him out as a true successor to Bartók and Kodály. The works in this recording are all reworkings – by Farkas or the two soloists here – of music first written for different forces and now taking on a new lease of life. András Adorján (flute), Lajos Lencsés (oboe, cor anglais), András Csáki (guitar), Balázs Szokolay (piano), Antal Váradi (organ).
