ARTHUR FARWELL

Readers will recall that #42 featured an essay by Brice Farwell about the music of his father, Arthur Farwell, who was strongly influenced by Blake. A recent issue of the Musical Heritage Review (3 July 1978) announced the release of a new recording of Farwell’s Piano Quintet in E minor, Op. 103.
