Mozart "Marcia a la turka" MIDI for 20er Organ
By Ingmar Krause

Hello once again!  Good old Mozart -- he never let me down so far!
As another thing on the list of things that I always wanted to do but
never did, I can now cross out the arrangement of "Marcia a la turka"
by W.A. Mozart, for 20-keyless!

Because I mentioned this as one of the pieces that I personally always
thought to be "impossible" for the 20er-scale, and as courtesy to my
future customers so that they might hear how music by Ingmar Krause
actually _sounds_, I sent the MIDI-file to Robbie for inclusion into
the depths of the MMD Archive.  Good ol' Mozart is long gone, so I
doubt any copyright problems will occur with that.

I actually was very surprised how smoothly and quickly, and with so
less problems and instead a lot of _fun_, this arrangement went along.
Three cheers to Carl Frei, who once again got proven his 20-note scale
to be just right!

Of course: To all those who are not gonna sneak off and punch this
arrangement themselves, you can order the roll from me (US$50 plus

 [ I like the piece, Ingmar; I think it's indeed a clever 'caricature'
 [ for the crank-organ, and Mozart (who himself arranged music for
 [ mechanical musical instruments) would love it!  :-)  Thank you for
 [ your contribution.  I'll place the MIDI file at the MMD Sounds site,
 [  -- Robbie
