Czardas for Double Bass & Piano
Czardas arranged for Doublebass and Piano.
Its origins can be traced back to the 18th century Hungarian verbunkos, used as a recruiting dance by the Hungarian army.
Csardas is characterized by a variation in tempo: it starts out slowly’ and ends in a very fast tempo (friss, literally "fresh"). There are other tempo variations, such as the ritka csardas. The music is in 2/4 or 4/4 time. The dancers are both male and female, with the women dressed in traditional wide skirts, usually colored red, which form a distinctive shape when they whirl.
Classical composers who have used csardas themes in their works include Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Johann Strauss, Pablo de Sarasate, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and others. Probably the best-known csardas is the eponymous composition by Vittorio Monti written for violin and piano. This virtuosic piece has 5 tempo variations.
