Alessandra Belloni’s collection TARANTELLE E CANTI D’AMORE vividly samples songs of despair as well as the remedy itself.
It takes a fairly cultivated, early-music approach and occasionally falls into a mishmash of New York-based instrumentation but has plenty to engage with, especially if you are coming from the Italian Symphony direction.
