The Czardas calender!
I love Montis czardas. Most of all be cause it simplifies the structure of the czardas as music form,and let artists and arrangers bloom, and explode in passion,skills, empathy,sensitivity and communication, and highlight the posibilities of the instrument. Often fantasy, playfullness and humor/wittiness is exposed too. It is a slightly poppy version of czardas, but it is by far the most popular by artists and the audience, and often played by the genuine folk artists too.
I pick my favourites, and there is a lot to choose from! Violin accompagned by piano or chimbalom? is the most common, but there is a vast of variations from whistling to heavy rock. I love the violin, as main instrument, but also have a weekness for accordion, flute, mandolin, clarinet and tuba! Orchestra versions can be very bad, many adult entertaining orchestrators, like James Last+++ has ersions, but there are om good ones.
Each of my selected has a genuine caracter, and I have enough to feed you with every day in avent!
Xylofon and brass gives an unique caracter. Sometimes a bit clumsy,but great charm! And brass is salvation army and christmas time!
It says country, but I smell ragtime, and some other american folk. Brilliant!
Millitary band, but not stiff at all! military colours with drums, and march, but a famtastic entertaining and passionate tuba!
Orchestral accompagnement to an eager unpolished violinist. One of the best with orch acc arr ;-)http://open.spotify.com/track/5Qp4nGommDL11Pu6553g0b
Passionate and sensitive latino guitar added to the czardas universe must be great. Fine variations and character, I call it storytelling, acc from second guitar and steady double bass
