The 823rd Soundtrack of the Week is from our old friend Nico Fidenco: Tranquille Donne di Campagna.

This score finds Fidenco in classical mode, with the main theme, repeated with variations throughout, basically being a small ensemble, string quartet plus a few other colors, playing a romantic, unhurried, lyical melody.

When the music deviates from this it's for things like a fox trot or a sort of late-night, bluesy jazz slow dance.

There isn't a single shake on the record! Which is a shame, since Fidenco is so good at them.

But it's lovely music all the same, and demonstrates the versatility of the composer.
