Toy Toccata by Fabian Svennson
Posted By Phyllis Chen
Toy Toccata was the winner of the 2011 UnCaged Toy Piano call for scores. The work has a simple approach where the right hand only plays the white keys on the instrument and the left hand only plays the black keys. With this simple idea, Fabian creates a virtuosic tour-de-force for this unassuming instrument. As he said, he wanted to create a work was aggressive and negated the “cuteness” that people often associate with the toy piano.
