This famous violin showpiece sounds great as a full orchestra work!  Although written by Italian Vittorio Monti, this well-loved work is regularly played by Gypsy orchestras throughout Hungary, Romania and Eastern Europe.  The csardas is a Hungarian dance originating from the music played in the csarda, a tavern in farming villages.  There are two sections; a slow lassu section and a fast friss ("fresh") section, creating a piece rich in flavor with equal portions of lyricism and technical brilliance.
