5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Balkan - Honey and Blood (Hesperion XXI/Savall) (Audio CD)
I would recommend this book and CDs to anyone with an interest in traditional music, both sung and instrumental.

The music is diverse and the book is a hardcover tome in multiple languages, include English, French, German, Hungarian, Greek, Turkish, Romanian, Serbian, Italian, Castillian Spanish, Catalan and Russian. The actual book content is not huge as it is obviously replicated in each language, but there are photos of the various regions associated, the musicians, and lovely illustrations. The three CDs are slotted into the front and back covers, so it might be worth getting a soft sleeve for the CDs themselves at some point, in case they stick to the cardboard ones.

If you, a friend or relative is learning an instrument or musical style associated with the Balkans, this might be a nice gift. Some instruments featured include the oud, a lyra/lira, tambura, any hammered dulcimer, accordion, any end-blown traditional flute, and a number of more common instruments played in regional styles.

Anyway, I'm not learning any instrument: I just like the music. There's plenty of variety and to find a collection like this is great!
