Description
During the 18th and 19th centuries, Schrammelmusik rose from the slums of Vienna (a musical product of the meeting of Austrian, Hungarian, Slovenian, Moravian and Bavarian immigrants) to the fashionable haunts of Vienna's aristocracy and even the Austrian court. Now stylish in the cafés of Vienna and Budapest, the music—largely waltzes and ländlers—is usually played with accordion and double-necked guitar. This collection features instead the zither and cimbalom in an airy and delicate combo.
