W. A. Mozart - Rondo alla Turca (Turkish March), solo classical guitar

Dipublikasikan tanggal 14 Peb 2012
In Mozart's time, the Ottoman Empire still ruled Turkey (Anatolia). Their military bands, called Janissary bands, were quite popular, even in Europe. Mozart borrowed from their sound and rhythm to produce this work, which became one of the big hits of Mozart's day. Its popularity has rarely waned since then. The final movement of the sonata, Rondo Alla Turca, captures the military bands' brassy sound. In its whirling feel, it can evoke another aspect of Turkish culture which has captivated Westerners--the whirling motion of the Sufi dervishes as they perform their ancient ritual of peace and wholeness, though the Rondo whirls at light speed, in contrast to the gentle movement of the Mevlevi.

    • AHHH! This amazing burning question !!l l am not in total agreement with this. It depends on the piece, l think. 🤔 I wouldn’t be making this statement since l DO play both; & have done both grades. 🥳😆. The advantage of the piano is, you have a whole orchestra at your fingers. You read both clefs. And all the advantages you have. And the GREAT LEONARD BERNSTEIN said ‘ Classical music is the most perfect music’. TRUE. 👊🏾Yet the great SEGOVIA said ‘The piano 😆is a ‘ behemoth with teeth.’ I think it comes down to the piece, plus it’s easier to ‘drag’ a guitar around, than an acoustic piano.IT’S ALL GOOD!!! 😜🎸🎹🎼✨😃🎶🎵❤️

    • You guys are too OP it's unfair...

  • How long does it take to learn this?

  • I think it's easier when u get this on the piano. But surely, when you do it on the guitar, it's really getting harder... bravo 🙌🙌

  • What's your guitar's model?

  • Guitar is so much more difficult than Piano, he did a wonderful job!!

  • this song was too good

  • A recent discovery - The guitar may be an instrument created for the dyslexic! The guitar's "B" string inherently has 5#s/bs; and naturally its relative major is at the "D" string, with 2#s/bs. The napkin (my YT icon) shows in writing that all "written" music can thus (theoretically) be transcribed and transposed into a single picture/pattern super imposed on the guitar's fretboard ~ so the guitar is dyslexic friendly(!)

  • Tabs?

  • Thumbs up 10x...am wondering why over 700 people dislikes this 🤔

  • Mom: wanna learn guitar or piano Me: yes

  • I dont want to be that guy who corrects everything but, Ottoman Empire didnt rule Turkey. Turkey is a new country found after ottoman empire collapsed, but its actually continuation of ottoman empire. So we can say ottoman empire change its regime and became republic of turkey. Another point is Ottoman military band was called "Mehter Band" They were not related so called whirling dervishes (Mevlevi culture) They were more like Bektasi instead of mevlevi. Amazing performance bby the way :) Love...

    • @Los Angeles Guitar Academy WOW a video uploaded 8 years ago and still get very sincere and fast respond from uploader. Thanks a lot. I really appreciate.

    • Hi Gokmen, thanks for your comment! I believe our copywriter is aware of the difference and she has only meant it geographically - as in 'Anatolia', but we'll add a note for clarification.

  • 👍🖐👏👏👏👏👏💪

  • Wtf la posición de la guitarra, por poco y se va al piso.

  • capoo

    • @Lothar L. "Capo" here in Argentina is an adjetive we use to say to some people who did a great job! But the Word comes from Italian Mafia.. "Capo" would be the higher range in the hierarchical scale in mafia family´s like Cappone, He was literally a Capo.

    • wer ist capoo?

  • Powerful fingers with a powerful guitar! I listen to this beautiful composition and I like the guitar performances too!

  • Well done. 748 people just threw away their guitars.

  • La música hace poesía nos hace viajar por nuestro yo interno y nos comunicamos con nuestra alma, la música no está para mostrar lo visible, sino para hacer visible, sentir y vivir lo que está más allá del mundo. Juan hernan.

  • So cool

  • that wonderful

  • Can I use this song in my ID-tv video

  • Bro this tab is actually amazing and I’m glad I got it, this is actually a piece that I wanted to learn and probably the first actual classical piece that I’m trying to manage to play and perform and so far it’s going really great. During this time I managed to learn other classical pieces easily due to the techniques that this tab teaches you. Thank you bud

  • twoset should react to this.

  • Fantastic!!! I have been playing this for years however, I really wanted to learn it from someone that actually knew it. Not just by using my ear (which is fine too). I purchased the sheet music to it and am very impressed at how much it has helped. Its always great to know a piece and then go through the sheet music and pick up little things here and there to make it that much better. Keep up the good work!!!

  • This guy is insane

  • I understand that piece wrote by Mozarr ,but its not Turkish

  • What 💕

  • Right hand : 0.75x speed Left hand : 2x speed Sounds : normal speed This is beyond my understanding.

  • even without the bass line part it's already impressive, but the fact that you arranged it the way you did this is top tier skill.

  • Is it in the classical guitar course and if so what level it is?

  • Adam olun lan
