Musician's or Publisher's Notes

Perhaps the most popular composition by an Armenian composer, the Toccata by Aram Khachaturian likens itself to the sound of machinery through rhythmic vitality and adissonant harmonic language.  The spirit of the piece is similar to Khachaturian’s ballet music, and cultivates a contagious dancing energy.  The music then relaxes to more     human-like andante espressivo exhibiting strange but beautiful harmonies, only to return to the explosive mechanism of the opening, and, ultimately, the undeniable finale.       Samuel Deason
