From Italian toccare, "to touch," a toccata is a virtuoso piece of music featuring lightly fingered, fast moving passages, generally emphasizing the dexterity of the performer's fingers.*
Widor's Toccata is a long time favorite of ours. Listening to the fury of an extremely talented organist power through this masterpiece, you get a good idea of what a grand pipe organ is capable of. Also, if you're like us, you get goosebumps. Every single time.
Tucker's "Tuckata" may not be lightly fingered, and it may not give you goosebumps. But his music touches us... he's played right into our hearts, making them swell just big enough to bump up the corners of our mouths.
