  • March 25, 2012 Khchaturian "Toccata" for piano solo

    This is an adequate re-print of this popular Toccata. Not bad for $4. As for the work itself, I consider the piece to be less difficult than this site suggests (very advanced). I recall memorizing it some 30+ years ago but dropped it not too long after. It is...

    in A-B-A form. The 2 A sections are fast, and being in e-flat minor (6 flats) the fingers are frequently on the black keys making it relatively easy to read and play. I find the slower rhapsodic B section to be a bit more difficult. Overall it sounds more difficult than it is to play.

  • June 17, 2010 A contemporary but versatile piece

    My goodness...the reviews here range from those claiming this is a beginner level piece that they played when they were 10 to those that say it is an insanely advanced song that requires "overwhelming" practice time. Neither of these are true - it is certainly a more difficult piece due...

    to its fast performance tempo and some tricky rhythm spots, but if you've played a Beethoven sonata or perhaps a Rachmaninoff prelude, its around the same technique level. An energetic, lush piece that will be received well in recitals and similar events, though i.m.o. is too "show-off"y of a song to choose for an audition.

  • November 12, 2009 Great Show Stopper

    I received my first standing ovation after playing this piece when I was a little kid (14) because it sure packs a hell of a lot of excitement. But this piece is not nearly as difficult as it sounds and I do not think it should be classified as "very...

    advanced." Looking back years later this piece is still a very rewarding piece to play. The tones and harmonies are beautiful. It sounds hard as hell and if played well will knock the audience out their feet. I highly recommend this piece, especially for young pianist looking to build and expand their repertory.

  • April 23, 2009 Khachaturian Toccata

    This is an excellent work by a composer whom I met years ago when he was in Indianapolis. I played this piece for my senior recital and lost the sheet music years later. So, when I ordered it from you, it was exactly the same. Wonderful and exciting to play...

  • March 02, 2009 Wonderful Piece!

    I love this piece! Khachaturian has created a piece that once mastered, can give the player the gratifying experience of playing something that is not stressful and sounds beatuiful. I have used the piece in both competition and performance venues and have found it to be not only adequate, but...

    glorious in its presentation and sound. I highly recomment this piece!
