Description

This is a crowd-pleasing arrangement of the well-known gypsy violin piece by Vittorio Monti, it’s based on the traditional Hungarian folk dance, Csárdás. Featuring a xylophone soloist (which can also be performed on marimba), it opens with a rhapsodic statement in D-minor which leads into a fiery Vivace showcasing the soloist’s two-mallet technique.

Catchy, fun, and attainable by most medium-level ensembles, this exciting arrangement by Stephen Primatic will have toes tapping and mallets whirling throughout concert halls.

Reviews

In my early years of being introduced to music, I remember my parents listening to violin solos performed by Fritz Kreisler which were considered a light, classical style. One solo that I remember liking was “Czardas,” which served as a showcase piece to highlight the musical expression, as well as the virtuosic technique, of a soloist.

This arrangement follows the original composition with several tempo changes, fermatas, and a wide range of dynamics. It captures each nuance the original has but may contain balance issues since the accompanying ensemble is large and sometimes a little thick in the scoring. A good director should be able to address these concerns in rehearsal.

This ensemble piece will be a great feature for an advanced xylophone soloist, and older audiences will love it also.
