Turkish March - Mozart Report Abuse
Klaviersonate Nummer 11". It is a sonata in three movements: Andante grazioso — a theme with six variations Menuetto — a minuet and trio Alla Turca: Allegretto in A minor All of the movements are in the key of A major or A minor; that is, the work is homotonal. A typical performance takes about 24 minutes. It is uncertain where and when Mozart composed the sonata; however, Vienna or Salzburg in around 1783 is currently thought to be most likely (Paris and dates as far back as 1778 have also been suggested). The last movement, Alla Turca, popularly known as the Turkish Rondo, is often heard on its own and is one of Mozart's best-known piano pieces.
