    A very intrigueing piece with its spasmodic bursts of energy and these deadpan diatonic chords in between. A good and unusual toccata. Is it performed or rendered ?

    Thanks Chris. It's rendered from my score in Sonar, with GPO's Steinway.

    Re: the score, I'd change the title to Toccata instead of Tocatta :wink:
    This score is hard to read or even follow because of these very elongated bars. To be performable, there should be 3 or 4 bars in a row, and not more than 5 rows on a page.
    A fascinating composition. I love Toccatas - shame they are most always too hard for me. If nothing else, these repeated notes would break me.
