Just a Little Fun With Music - Listening Assignment

Wednesday, April 1, 2020 by Paula Augustine | Music History

Spending time listening to music is just as important as learning to play it! This is a fun version of Mozart's Alla Turca by Melody Street.

Mozart is a well known name, but did you know his full name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart? Try saying that once!

This piece is in Rondo Form, which simply means the main theme keeps coming back. Listen carefully to the beginning, the fast swirling theme, how many times do you here this fast part come back? Do you here any other part played again? When a section comes back does it sound exactly the same, or is something different?
