Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio is perhaps the most famous of the Turkish style operas, in which virtuous women are rescued from a harem and the sinister Turks. The opera includes two Janissary marches and one can listen to the entire opera over at.This imitation of Turkish music became so popular in Mozart’s time that special pianos were outfitted with a “Turkish Stop” or “Janissary Stop”, which included a pedal that caused a bell to ring or padded hammer to be struck to imitate a bass drum. Other pianos with built-in bells, tambourines, cymbals, bass drums and other noise-makers became all the rage at the turn of the 19th century.

It s really funny that still everybody thinks like that about ottoman harems do you really think it was different in other countries at that time? Im sure that ottoman padisah would get jealous of other kingdoms if he saw their harem

right, some tourists really get dissapointed when they find out that the haremlik section is simply the place where the sultan and his family lived in, but some of these "virtuous" people also join the sex trips to Thailand to have sex with underaged girls.

 I think you missed two factors:

(1) People DONT still think like that about Ottoman harems - we are talking about the time that Mozart was around.

(2) My post was a joke (as much about the women tourists in Bodrum as the men)

 

CALM DOWN EVERYONE! {#lang_emotions_you_crazy}
