At the time Mozart wrote the A major Piano Sonata, K331, c. 1783 in Vienna or Salzburg, the music of Turkish Janissary bands was very much in fashion. These groups are thought to be the oldest form of military marching bands in the world. Indeed, at that time in Mozart's life, anything Ottoman was very much in vogue. The third and final movement of K331 was entitled ‘Alla Turca’ by Mozart himself and his quick, simple, yet rustic melody has become one of his most popular works. Georges Pludermacher’s recording was released for the first time in 1991.

“The pianist Pludermacher’s playing is intensely thoughtful and forward without being overbalancing.” - Sunday Times
