Mira Farkas

harp

Mira Farkas comes from a family of musicians, and was never in any doubt that she would follow in their footsteps. In 2014 she graduated with honours in Harp from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, where Andrea Vigh was her mentor. Solo performances, orchestral playing and chamber music all play an important part in Mira Farkas’ life, with the various disciplines complementing and strengthening each other. In recent years she has gained experience in the ranks of the MÁV Symphonic Orchestra, Concerto Budapest and other prestigious ensembles, under such renowned conductors as Zoltán Kocsis, Ken-Ichiro Kobayashi or Ádám Fischer. The Romantic period is closest to her style of performance and personality; its passion and extremes represent, for her, the golden age of harp music. When it comes to chamber music, she transcribes the music for most of the pieces herself; and besides the cello, violin and flute, she also plays in the familiar harp and cimbalom duo formation with her younger sister. One of Mira Farkas’ most important accolades so far is the Junior Prima Award that she earned in 2014, in the Hungarian Music category. Already no stranger to performing abroad, the award enabled her to travel as far afield as Israel, among other places, where she gave solo performances to audiences in Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv. In 2016 she was awarded the Annie Fischer Performing Arts Scholarship.
