Is Rondo Alla Turca actually a Rondo?


Recommended Posts

A rondo is an elaboration of ritornello form, where the refrain is played between contrasting sections. In this case, it happens to be B not A.

...describes that the form can be boiled down to an ABA by what they call "second order groupings" but this is unconvincing to me.
