Greek folk music is characterized by the sound of the “buzuki” which is often used in combination with clarinet, mandolin, violin and various types of tambourines. In Greek Folk Song Suite, Franco Cesarini has elaborated on three songs belonging to this most ancient tradition. The first, “O Haralambis,” is in 7/8 time and characteristic of a popular folk dance called kalamatianos. The second movement, “Stu Psiloriti,” refers to an ancient song from the island of Crete. The third movement of the suite is based on the song “Vasilikos tha gino” and is characterized by the sirtaki, probably the most popular Greek dance outside of Greece. This is Greek passion effectively portrayed by a concert band! Dur: 9:00.
