about

The toccata was a Baroque form that was meant to express emotion even at the risk of bending the rules; a very romantic notion for that time. This Piano Toccata has a very tight thematic material and treatment. It does not cater to romantic feelings and beautiful lines. It begins in a very controlled exposition of the material, which in itself is very circumscribed. It continues to explore excesses of musical emotion and dissonance. I took my inspiration from a wonderful rendition of Prokofiev's Sonata #6.

from Sampler 2009​-​10 Recent Music, released April 11, 2011
These works were composed on Finale music software by MakeMusic Inc. Since a score is also produced in manuscript form, the piece can be performed and recorded by live musicians. My interest is in sharing my work with listeners and musicians and have the work performed as it is intended; by live musicians.
