Toccata Festivo by Jennifer Linn

February 27, 2018

This uplifting toccata, with its active rhythms and spectacular ending, is sure to delight those students with a penchant for flashy repertoire. An exercise mostly in triads, students will quickly latch on to familiar patterns and be able to play from memory in no time.

 

Despite the percussive character of this composition, there are many opportunities to cultivate expressive nuances. With the right approach, this piece will provide both a thrilling and musically expressive performance.
