The same technique of reinterpreting harmonically a melodic arrival is employed as a transition from the cadence of the opening section in Toccatas I and II Toccata I, mm. In Toccata V virtually all of the figuration is derived from or stresses the interval of a fourth, contracted into a chromatic third above the penultimate pedal. Renowned for its superb sound quality, Chandos has won many prestigious awards for its natural sound.

Frescobaldi reserves his most dazzling rhythmic effects for the final cadence, an apotheosis of the preceding rhythmic clashes mm. Both Frescoaldi toccatas are remarkable for their extended unbroken sections, and it is frescobald to examine the longest of these, the opening of Toccata IV, to understand how Frescobaldi achieves this continuity. This increased definition is more apparent in the central area of the toccatas, above all in frescobaldo insertion of sections in triple or compound meter I, IX, X, XIa feature that had previously appeared only rarely in the toccatas of the Neapolitans magnifjcat never in those of Frescobaldi.

Rising scale figures are an easily perceived unifying device and are variously employed, ascending regularly through the chordal texture mm. The central achievement of this volume is its repertory of toccatas, which attain an unprecedented grandeur, richness, and expressiveness of declamation, now channeled and organized by clear and yet subtle structural principles. Such characteristic devices as the internal pedal-points and the grinding combinations of trills and passaggi frescobladi the fancy in conception and extended logic in execution characteristic of Baroque art.


Toccate II defines the frescogaldi of the past and the future most sharply in the intabulation and the bass variations respectively. The contrast between focused and unfocused sections is an important aspect of the new formal definition in the toccatas.

The short repeated phrases of both patterns had a potential for chains of continuous variations strikingly different from the articulated, closed structures of earlier variation-sets. Select your download format.

Canzona VI is entirely in triple meter and employs the same mensurations: The harmony changes regularly every quarter-note, frequently a chromatic inflection of a more basic change on the half note, and the bass is firmly marked. If Frescobaldi is a master of strategic delay in the Elevations, he is no less capable of strongly directed motion.

The organ-versets for vespers—hymn- and Magnificat-verses—are a new genre for Frescobaldi only in their appearance in print.

In fact, however, the underlying harmonic structures of these works are more direct even that those of the pedal toccatas: Free figural writing in sectional contrapuntal works, which Girolamo began in the capriccios, is now integrated seamlessly into the texture, so that sections regularly begin with the energy of canzona-motives and dissolve into brilliant figuration.

In the middle of the toccata Frescobaldi creates a rhythmic modulation rivalling those of his English predecessors mm. The first three and the last extend the development of the variation-canzona, a procedure most strikingly exemplified in the descending chromatic subject of Canzona III.

The dedicatee to whom these observations were addressed was an amateur harpsichordist of professional caliber, and the bulk of the volume consists of genres appropriate to the harpsichord: Like any other seventeenth-century Italian organist, he must have improvised their equivalents every working day of his life.

Although the figuration of the pedal frexcobaldi is more obviously decorative in its relation to the underlying harmonic structure, which is not merely suggested, as in the harpsichord toccatas, but unequivocally present in every measure, its luxuriance is not random.
