English

From the incidental music composed in 1954 to the play “Twelfth night” by Shakespeare, Farkas selected four songs, which were later given in concert with piano or harp accompaniment  under the title "Songs from the Twelfth night by Shakespeare." "Come away" is the third of them.

The melody of "Come away" appeared again in 1964 in the Concertino all'antica for baritone (viola di bordone) viola and violoncello or or string orchestra. Farkas used it as theme in the second movement "Aria con variazioni". In 1995, he adapted it again, this time for mixed choir, and dedicated this new version to his daughter-in-law Françoise.

Franšais

De la musique de scène écrite en 1954 pour la pièce de Shakespeare « Twelfth night » (La nuit des rois), Farkas reprit quatre mélodies qui furent par la suite données en concert avec accompagnement de piano ou de harpe sous le titre « Songs from the Twelfth night by Shakespeare ». « Come away » est la troisième d’entre elles. 

Le thème du « Come away » apparut de nouveau en 1964 dans le Concertino all'antica for baryton (viola di bordone) or violoncello or viola and string orchestra.  Farkas s’en servit comme motif de base pour son 2ème mouvement  “Aria con variazioni”. En 1995, il l’adapta une fois de plus, cette fois pour choeur mixte, et dédia cette nouvelle version à sa belle-fille Françoise.

Magyar

 A „Vízkereszt, vagy amit akartok” 1954-es színpadi zenéjéből Farkas négy dalt emelt ki önálló koncertelőadásra, zongora vagy hárfa kísérettel. A színházi előadásokon ezek Szabó Lőrinc fordításában szólaltak meg, dalként azonban Shakespeare eredeti szövegével is énekelhetők.
