Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Quite a talent, but not what I expected
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I was looking for traditional Romanian music when I bought this CD. Muzur certainly is a master fiddler, and the music is distinctly Romanian in style and presentation, but it's not "traditional" or "folk," as I had expected. It's more akin to the Romanian version of the Turtle Island String Quartet: Muzur and other talented Romanian musicians start from a culturally-based common ground, and do all sorts of interesting (and sometimes humorous) new things based on old ideas.If you're not afraid to hear something new, this is kind of interesting. If you're looking for traditional "folk" Romanian music, this isn't it."
