Toccata from the Organ Symphony
- Editor's Choice
“Not an obvious choice!”
This is not an obvious choice of instrumentation for this piece, but one that can be really effective in the right hands. The famous semiquaver theme is evenly distributed between all four parts encouraging listening skills to develop both accuracy and intonation. The audio clips are electronic and the speeds chosen are deliberately quite slow. Here, this results in quite a pretty sounding performance but acoustically the piece offers a great deal in terms of skill and stamina, not to mention entertainment!
