About the Music: Rondo all Turca
Rondo alla Turca is from Mozart’s Piano Sonata no. 11. Although originally composed for piano, it has been orchestrated, or rewritten, for many different groups of instruments. It is one of his best-known pieces and has inspired many new versions as well like this fun jazzy-take take.
To help kids understand how musicians work alone and as a team, we have an interactive activity with some of our wonderful musicians playing from home at your command!
- You can turn the sound and videos of each musician on and off by clicking on them.
- Listen to what parts different instruments play and how they work together.
- Try as many combos as you like!
NOTE ON TECHNOLOGY: Please use Google Chrome for this activity. Since Apple will only allow one video to play at a time on an Apple device, visit this page from a non-Apple device to do the interactive activity. If you are on an Apple device, you’ll still have access to the full performance video.
Once you’ve played around with the parts, watch the full performance here:
