About

Toccata Classics continues its exploration of the music of the Hungarian composer Ferenc Farkas (1905–2000) with this second of two releases of his chamber works with cello. As with previous albums in this series, the music here features the characteristics that make Farkas’s music so appealing: catchy tunes, transparent textures, buoyant rhythms and a fondness for Baroque forms and folk-dances. Some of these pieces speak a tougher language that show Farkas to have been in touch with his times, but it is the infectious melodic appeal of most of the music here that carries the day.

“... beautifully performed here by Miklós Perényi in what is its premiere recording. ... The recording quality is fine, and László Gombos’s booklet notes up to this label’s customarily high standard.” – Music Web International, December 2016 (Chamber Music with Cello Vol.1: TOCC0345)
