AllMusic Review by

The urban string-band serenaders of Canosa draw both from other parts of Italy and "middle-class" traditions as diverse as Viennese waltzes and Tzigane music, and the robust rural version has almost equally rich roots. This splendid CD covers both deliciously (but the notes, though long, are far too general). It's good to see "bourgeois" forms at last getting some attention, too!
