Mozart’s Rondo alla Turca (Turkish March) is one of the most famous melodies in the classical music repertoire. Rondo is called the form in which a basic theme reappears making circles (rounds) within the piece. Other themes are presented in between, which in turn can be heard more than once, making their own cycle.
Mozart composed this work influenced by the marches of Turkish army that had then reached central Europe.
