"Csárdás" ("Czardas") is the only famous composition of Vittorio Monti. A rhapsodical concert piece written in 1904, it is a well-known folk piece based on a Hungarian csárdás. It was originally composed for violin, mandolin or piano. Nowadays, it is usually played on the violin, but can also be played as a piano solo, saxophone solo, on the accordion, or as an orchestral arrangement. The duration of the piece is about four and a half minutes. The violin solo played at the beginning of "Alejandro" is an adaptation of the main melody.
