Program Notes

A "csárdás" is a Hungarian dance, dating from the 18th century, in which the dancers start slowly and finish with a rapid whirl. Italian composer Vittorio Monti composed his Czárdás (his most famous composition) in 1904. It was originally written for virtuoso solo violin (with seven tempo changes in just four minutes of music), but has been rewritten and transcribed for a variety of virtuoso solo instruments and ensembles, even until today in samples by Lady Gaga.
