Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Typically composed for a keyboard instrument, a Toccata usually features quickly-moving virtuosic passages, demonstrating the deftness of the performer's fingers. In the time of Bach, the Toccata was an important form of keyboard composition. Written in a semi-improvisatory style, Bach's seven Toccatas are extremely intricate. Italian pianist Alessandro Deljavan steps up to the challenge of these works beautifully. "His playing is full of intensive power and contagious artistry." (Dmitri Bashkirov)
