It was also in this period that the usage of Turkish elements by imposers like Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Beethoven in classical compositions was in vogue. This essay explores how the Turkish influences penetrate Into classical music, when it started and what are some music elements that these composers Like Mozart and Beethoven choose to Implement Into their classical compositions. In the early 20th century, a group of Turkish musicians who called themselves Turk Belier’ (The Turkish Five) , consisting of Neal Zamia Sakes, Has Ferrite Allan, Luvs Camel Erick, Camel Re$t Ere and Aimed Adman Saying had studied music In
Europe and were considered the five pioneers who introduced western classical music into Turkey. They were renowned composers with political connections in their time who had composed some of the most excellent Turkish classical pieces during the early age of the Republic Of Turkey. They Introduced the mix of Turkish and Classical music in which the traditional themes of old Turkish music were used together with the elements from Western Classical music that they had studied to produce interesting new compositions with a polyphonic structure.
Some of their impositions consists of five symphonies; four operas; concertos (two for piano, violin, viola and cello); various orchestral works; Chamber music and vocal music. Aimed Adman Saying composed the famous Yuan’s Mere Oratorio. One of the most famous classical composers In the 18th century to compose classical music with Turkish Influences Is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Some of his compositions with Turkish influence are Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major, KICK and an opera called The abduction from the Seraglio. In his Piano Sonata No. 1 in A major, KICK, its 3rd or sat movement called Rondo All Truck opus 113 was so popular that it was often heard or played on Its own. It has the Imitation of the umber from the Turkish military bands also known as the Turkish Janissary bands, thus it was in a lively style of a march. This section, with its steady rhythmic pulse of a 2/4 meter and quick tempo, is a reflection of Janissary music. All Truck has repeated notes, ornaments to stress the beat and loud or soft passages which are characteristics of the Turkish style.
In All Truck, the percussion instruments play a rhythm that sounds like the arching cadence of the soldiers. The rhythm is made up of:. Similar to: “Left… Left… Left Right Left … ” The melodic instruments in the Turkish music often emphasize the rhythm by playing grace notes , either by one note or several in succession, on the beat. Usually, In the last movement of the Turkish March, it will sometimes be performed on a piano and it will be played with a Turkish stop which is 1 OFF bass drum thus allowing it to have extra percussion effects.
Another famous composer who got influenced by the Turkish culture and who also composed Turkish themed pieces is Ludwig Van Beethoven. In his highly acclaimed rhea Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Pop. 125, its last movement known as Marcia All RCA is a well- known classical march theme; it also, like Mozart Turkish March was Mitten in a Turkish style. Marcia All Truck comes from an overture and incidental music that was for a play by August von Stakeout called The Ruins of Athens (Pop. 113). This was composed by Beethoven in 1811 and it was premiered in Pest in 1812. Rakish March appears as item number 4 of that incidental music piece and was sung in a florid variation by a tenor soloist assisted by the tenors and basses of the hours, accompanied by Turkish instruments playing pianissimo Marcia All Truck is n B flat major, in 2/4 time and in the tempo of vice. The organization of the dynamic scheme makes the piece sound like a procession starting out with pianissimo’ followed by ‘Pico a Pico crescendo’ rising to a fortissimo’ in climax and then going back to pianissimo reaching the coda.
The instruments such as brass, strings, woodwinds, percussions and voices serve as a section of lowered intensity found in between two more full forced emotion charged sections. Turkish styled music can be found mostly in finales of long pieces which may otherwise be the most relaxed and least organized movements of any classical work. rhea Turkish influence in classical music has indeed added much vigor and passion to its otherwise milder form, a genre of music that is really interesting and refreshing to listen to.
