Absolutely charming--a poplulist take on great opera tunes
Jeffrey Newkirk | fl | 07/01/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A friend from Rome tells me upon hearing this CD that this type of band is typically comprised of amateurs, who play in open air concerts for audiences who cannot afford exhorbitant opera tickets. I don't know if that is true, but it describes the music quite well. This CD makes you feel like you are listening in on a flawed, totally charming band that just stepped off the Amarcord set. Not spoiled, not precious, not conceited, and full of heart. Warm, wonderful and rare.
By the way, two CDs come in this package. The second I have never really related to. Sorry to go on so long. Ciao."
