Hungarian violin virtuoso Sándor Lakatos and his Gipsy Band play Csárdás, a composition by Italian composer Vittorio Monti (6 January 1868 – 20 June 1922). Czárdás is actually a traditional Hungarian folk dance, the name derived from csárda (old Hungarian term for tavern). Monti’s piece is based on that form of folk music, written around 1904 and became very popular, played by almost every gypsy orchestra.
Sándor Lakatos was the fifth gypsy band leader from the famous Lakatos dynasty. He was an internationally-known Liszt Prize-winner gypsy bandleader.
