The "Toccata" is one of Eugene Gigout's most well known works for organ. This wonderful work brings to bear the full forces of the performing instrument as well as the dexterity of the performer, a total fireworks show.
This arrangement on Toccata is set for orchestra, with the nimble strings and winds covering the dazzling rapid passages, the brass adding accents and strength and the low instruments providing the pedal voice.
