Music from Italy gets a decidedly folk interpretation on this installment of New Sounds. Listen to Luciano Berio's settings of Sicilian folk songs, including "Canzuna," "Novena Di Natale," and "Naturale." Also, get a taste of folk arrangements from the Neapolitan band Spaccanapoli, whose music is rooted in the traditions of the local working class, with its pulsing drums, passionate vocals and the wild dances of the Tarantella and Tammurriata. Works by Piero Milesi, Franco Battiato, Giovani Sollima, and Musci Venosta round out the program.
