Composer Pianist

TOCCATA (1983)

Duration: 2½ minutes

Programme note Toccata was written in 1983 while the composer was a student at Sydney University, in response to a workshop commission for the Sydney Schumann Society. This work was influenced by two particular factors: the composer’s introduction to Indian raga, and encouragement from the composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks to concentrate on melody and rhythm.
