Mozart: Piano Sonata No.11 in A K331. Mvt III. Rondo Alla Turca (Turkish March) - wind quintet
One of Mozart's well known piano pieces:The Alla Turca is in Rondo form.
The last movement of this Sonata, "Alla Turca", popularly known as the "Turkish March", is often heard on its own and is one of Mozart's best-known piano pieces; it was Mozart himself who titled the rondo "Alla Turca". 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 Turkish style, including Mozart's own opera Die Entführung aus dem Serail. In Mozart's time, the last movement was sometimes performed on pianos built with a "Turkish stop", allowing it to be embellished with extra percussion effects.
I have arranged it for natural horn in A and clarinet in A. Horn in F and Bb clarinet is also provided. I have have added additional voicings throughout.
