Monti studied violin and composition at the Conservatorio di San Pietro a Majella in Naples . Around 1900 he received an appointment as conductor of the Lamoureux Orchestra in Paris . In later years he devoted himself more to violin and mandolin playing ; He also taught both instruments and also wrote a textbook for the mandolin.
Vittorio Monti wrote several ballets and operettas . His most famous piece of music is the csárdás , a popular virtuoso piece that is in the repertoire of many gypsy music bands. In addition to Monti's original composition, which was written for a solo mandolin or violin with piano or orchestral accompaniment (the dedicatee Juliette Dantin was a violinist), numerous arrangements for a wide variety of solo instruments and ensembles are in circulation today.
