This week you will be listening to music written by W. A. Mozart, an Austrian composer who lived from 1756-1791. The example is a piano Sonata that opens with a set of variations after which follows a minuet. The final movement is the very well-known “Turkish March” in which Mozart is having a little fun with the popularity of all things Turkish which was the rage during the late 1770’s and 1780’s.
