Toccata, S197a

composer
circa 1875/81

 
The Toccata is an extraordinary little study, unusual among the late pieces for its prestissimo tempo direction and the ambiguous ‘white-note’ flavour to the harmony before the parallel chromatic movement of the closing passage.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1991

La Toccata est une extraordinaire petite étude, exceptionnelle parmi les dernières pièces pour son tempo prestissimo et l’atmosphère ambiguë de «blanches» de l’harmonie avant le mouvement parallèle chromatique du trait de conclusion.

extrait des notes rédigées par Leslie Howard © 1991
Français: Elisabeth Rhodes

Die Toccata ist eine ungewöhnliche kleine Etüde, die sich von den späten Stücken durch ihre Tempoanweisung prestissimo abhebt, sowie durch den zweideutigen Anflug von Diatonik vor dem parallelen chromatischen Verlauf der Schlußpassage.
