The “Turkish Rondo” or “Turkish March” is one of Mozart’s best-known piano pieces. Although it is often heard on its own, it is actually the last movement of his Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major K. 331. Mozart himself titled the movement, which takes the form of a rondo, “Alla Turca”. It imitates the sound of Turkish Janissary bands, the music of which was much in vogue when Mozart composed this work ca. 1783.
