Discography Blasts from the Century Past: David Heller (Gothic POCD-7197)
This is a recital work that blends all the extroverted elements of a great toccata with contrasting, quieter music based upon a folk-influenced melody. The work is difficult (involving active manual textures and double and triple pedaling), but would make a stunning conclusion to any organ recital.
“Fantasy Toccata is a brilliant recital piece that blends the ideas of a great toccata with a contrasting, folk-like melody. The music is difficult and mixes any number of manual textures as well as double and triple pedaling. The registration presumes a three manual organ, though with some careful planning, this could be performed on a small instrument.” --AAM Journal, September 2010
