"The writing of Richard Farber is always flowing and vital no matter what ensemble he chooses to compose for.
Apparent in his writing is a great imagination and the courage to break conventional molds and return to them.

The works of Richard Farber are multifaceted, sometimes dramatic, theatrical and extrovert and in the next moment intimate and lyrical. His control of the instrumental media is complete and the composer knows how to achieve the utmost from each orchestral instrument."
