History of the Composition
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ~ January 27th, 1756 – December 5th, 1791
Rondo Alla Turca is one of Mozart’s best-known piano pieces, and was written in approximately 1783, in either Salzburg or Vienna. It is the third movement of Mozart’s Sonata No. 11 in A Major, and is often played on its own. “Rondo” means “Round”, and it is indicative of the recurring theme which can be heard throughout this piece.
Why do I like this piece? Well, it has a beautiful melody, it is popular, and it is Mozart! I enjoy playing Mozart a great deal. His music is very transparent, clean, logical, organized, and divinely inspired.I trust you will enjoy this beautiful piece. Thank you for listening!
