Janissaries-1583-The Janissaries failed to suppress the Greek bid for independence in the 1820s, providing evidence of their inefficiency and of the urgency of the need for reform.  In 1826, they got wind of the plans of Sultan Mahmud II to form a new style army, and revolted. The Sultan, however, had foreseen their reaction and provided himself with loyal troops. The Janissary barracks in Istanbul and provincial headquarters were shelled, and most of them were eventually killed or banished.

The Janissaries pioneered military bands. Their military march music is characteristic because of its powerful, often shrill sound combining davul (bass drum), zurna (a loud oboe), naffir (trumpet), bells, triangle, and cymbals (zil), among others. Janissary music influenced European classical musicians like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, both of whom composed marches in the Turkish style (Mozart's Piano Sonata in A major, K. 331 (c. 1783),
