Canzonet

 

in the 16th and 17th centuries, a short polyphonic song; in the 18th century, also a solo strophic song, often with dance elements. The canzonet genre began in Italy. Nineteenth-century composers sometimes called instrumental pieces “canzonets” (for example, the middle movement of Tchaikovsky’sConcerto for Violin).
