Description

Composed for, and dedicated to, Owen Farr, this single movement work for tenor horn is divided into clearly defined sections.  The introduction consists of a fanfare figure which is taken up by the soloist and turned into a cheerful melody.  This is developed and varied during the progress of the first section, culminating in a climax.  The pace later slackens and a new theme emerges, which grows out of the opening fanfare figure.  This is then taken up by the accompaniment and shared with the soloist.  A return to the faster music brings a new set of variants on the original theme, which builds to a broad statement of the middle section theme.  A recapitulation of the primary material is rounded off by an energetic coda, also based on earlier material.

Tenor Toccata is also available with piano accompaniment as part of Prima Vista Musikk's Owen Farr Solo Series.
