Violinist and composer Ridley-Kohne spent the majority of his career performing and teaching in Pest. His compositions are almost exclusively dances and tunes for the violin.
The "Éljen!" Csárdás is the composer's most popular work. The present copy has a variant title page that omits the patriotic Hungarian "Éljen!" (Long live!), in all likelihoood due to the Vienna imprint.
