Ferenc Farkas (1905-2000) was one of Hungary's most important 20th-century composers. He studied with Leo Weiner and Albert Siklos at the Academy of Music in Budapest from 1922 to 1927, then continued his studies in Rome at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia with Ottorino Respighi. From 1935 he taught at the Higher Music School in Budapest, then at the Conservatory in Kolozsvar, and later at the Szekesfehervar Conservatory (he was also director of the latter two). In 1949 he was appointed teacher and later head of the department of composition at the Academy of Music Budapest. His oeuvre of more than 700 works comprises almost every musical genre. His technical virtuosity as a composer and his knowledge of style won him international recognition.

  • December 31, 2007 Good Choice for High School

    This is an excellent 8 minute work for mixed high school woodwind ensemble with technical in interpretive challenges to ensure a group of students a few months work. It is great to seek and find a recording- we used NAXOS.

  • May 08, 2007 Regi Magyar Tancok a Crowd Pleaser

    This updated version of Farkas's Regi Magyar Tancok is charming and accessible. The added translations of the dance names and the rehearsal numbers help the rehearsals run smoothly. With singable melodies throughout, the quintet can explore the balance and coloring of repeated themes. Each player gets a prominent part...

    and must be technically secure. This short work (8 minutes) is perfect to program at the end of a concert, for children's concerts, or as an entertaining diversion. Highly recommended. Good Recording: Frosunda Wind Quintet's Favourite Music for Wind Quintet
