Rondo Alla turca


This is shortened version of Mozart's Alla turca in an arrangement for improver keyboard having specified fingering marked on the score. It should be an easy piece to learn in that it one of the the most immediately recognisable and popular pieces of music in the repetoire. It was Mozart himself who titled the piece Alla turca (Turkish March) as the music was intended to imitate the sounds of the instruments in the then familiar Turkish military bands. Understood to have been composed in 1783, a tempo in the range 110-120 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is suggested and little use of sustaining pedal is advised although it can be used more readily in the coda or closing section.
