    An interesting toccata (Toccata would have been a better title IMO). That silly women's voice completely ruins it for me though. What a bad idea to spoil an otherwise good piece of music that way. I found the ending unconvincing. A toccata-like piece like this needs a strong and assertive end. Just my opinion ! It is very well played.

    Hi

    The composition has much merit in my opinion. It's a hard driving toccata by very musical too.

    The only situation I know of where such a voice-over is heard is when downloaded software is on a time-limited free trial. I think they program the voice-over to frustrate the user into making the purchase to get rid of the annoyance. (Sounds like she says "sine maio si qui".) Unfortunately it destroys the recording.

    If that is what this user wants to give us, samples of music with the bizarre voice over, I want nothing to do with it.
