Here is my showcase of my diabolical solo piano work, An American Toccata, written over the course of 2008 to 2013.
It was written with three elements in mind:
- Medieval modes (the precursors to modern-day harmonic scales);
- Technical playing that entirely avoids the damper pedal; and
- Domenico Scarlatti’s crisp, sleek Baroque harpsichord sonatas.
