FOR THE CURIOUS CELLIST

Czardas (by V. Monti)

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 in fact his only surviving (still played) composition. Here then is the cellofun version for cello and piano.
