Sunday Bandstand 5 April 2020

Vittorio Monti (6 January 1868 – 20 June 1922) was an Italian composer, violinist, mandolinist and conductor. He was born in Naples, where he studied violin and composition at the Conservatorio di San Pietro a Majella. Around 1900 he received an assignment as the conductor for the Lamoureux Orchestra in Paris, where he wrote several ballets and operettas,

His most famous work is his Czardas, A concert piece written in 1904, it is a well-known folkloric piece based on a Hungarian czardas. It was originally composed for violin, mandolin or piano. There are arrangements for orchestra and for a number of solo instruments, including the tenor horn which we are featuring on this week’s show with Owen Farr as the soloist. The duration of the piece is about four and a half minutes.

Enjoy the show
