Pop Culture Classical: Lady Gaga and Vittorio Monti

Napals native Vittorio Monti (6 January 1868 – 20 June 1922) was a conductor, violinist and composer. His most famous work is Csárdás was sampled by Lady Gaga in in her 2009 smash hit Alejandro. Watch both videos and hear the blending of traditional classical music with pure pop.

PS We’ve deliberately chosen this really old recording to contrast the two music styles.
