English

"Musica per ottoni" for three trumpets, two trombones, and tuba was commissioned by the Hungarian Radio but its first public performance only  occurred ten years later. Its final movement is identical with the last movement of "Intrada, Passacaglia, Saltarello" for wind ensemble, the both works being written in August 1982. Farkas commented on the work as follows:

"This composition, with its divertimento tone, follows a centuries-old tradition in every respect: in the succession of its movements (fast - slow - fast) and their formal structure (sonatina, lied form, rondo). Following the energetic first movement (Allegro), the trumpet melody of the second movement (Adagio) arches over the ostinato accompaniment. In the third movement (Allegro), I quote again the saltarello rhythm that frequentlyntly appears in my works".

Franšais

"Musica per ottoni" pour trois trompettes, deux trombones et tuba a été commandée par la Radio hongroise, mais sa première performance publique est n'est survenue que dix ans plus tard. Son dernier mouvement est identique au dernier mouvement de "Intrada, Passacaglia, Saltarello" pour ensemble du vent, les deux oeuvres ayant été écrites en août 1982. Farkas commenta cette pièce comme suit:

"Cette composition s'inspire de la tradition centenaire du divertimento : dans la succession de ses mouvements (rapide - lent-rapide) et sa structure formelle (sonatine, Lied, rondo). Après l'énergique premier mouvement (Allegro), la mélodie de la trompette du second mouvement (Adagio) se développe en forme d'arc au-dessus de l'ostinato de l'accompagnement. Dans le troisième mouvement (Allegro), j'utilise le rythme saltarello qui apparaît souvent dans mes œuvres ".
