Featured on the new Anderson & Roe album "An Amadeus Affair" on the Steinway label, available for purchase here:
Just as Mozart appropriated the Turkish style into his "Rondo alla turca," we've appropriated the music of Mozart into our own. We've titled the piece "Ragtime alla turca" and although it diverts considerably from the notes of Mozart's rondo, we sought to capture the utter joyousness and virtuosity -- and the folksiness and sense of play -- of the original work.
Piece: "Ragtime alla turca" (based on Mozart's "Rondo alla turca" from his Sonata in A major, K. 331.
