Toccata - from Organ Symphony No. 5 - Op. 13 et 42 by Charles Marie Widor (1844-1937). Arranged for Concert Band by Daniel Drage.
Widor's Toccata stands alongside Bach's Toccata and Fugue in d as one of the most famous organ works ever written, and one of the very few to become part of the general classical repertoire. Many organ works (including many of Widor's) surpass the Toccata in musical stature, but few match its exuberance and sunny appeal.
The work develops in a simple A-B-A-Coda structure. It never strays from the rhythmic and harmonic outline stated in the first bar.
Daniel Drage has yet again outdone himself in this amazing arrangement. His knowhow of orchestrating is well known, and is as always challenging, but manageable.
