Tune of the Day: Turkish Rondo

from Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 11
Turkish Military Band

This last movement of Mozart's Sonata No. 11, called “Alla Turca”, is popularly known as the “Turkish March”, although this name more correctly refers to another piece by Beethoven. It is often heard on its own and is one of Mozart's best-known piano pieces. It imitates the sound of Turkish Janissary bands, the music of which was much in vogue at that time. Various other works of the time imitate this music, including Mozart's own opera The Abduction from the Seraglio.
