Czardas (by V. Monti): For Cello

Here is the sheet music for Czardas, by V. Monti, in a version for cello and piano.

This spectacular piece has been transcribed and arranged for probably every instrument imaginable – and for good reason! We might think that this is authentic gypsy music from Eastern Europe but in fact, it was composed by the eminently italian composer Vittorio Monti (Naples 1868-1922) in the style of the traditional Hungarian-gypsy Csárdás. It is his only surviving (still played) composition.
