About "Turkish March" by Beethoven:
"Turkish March" was composed by a German composer, Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827) from the classical era. It was written in the Turkish style. Often, many people associate it with The Ruins of Athens because "Turkish March" appears as the 4th movement in it. But he didn't write "Turkish March" for The Ruins of Athens. It was written originally separately before The Ruins of Athens was created. Also, please do not confuse this "Turkish March" with "Turkish March" composed by Mozart which is also very famous.
