Passacaglia & Toccata


By Edwin Stube

SKU: 9730 Category:


Mr. Stube’s many years as organist show in the colorful registration and comfortable writing for the hands and feet. The Passacaglia theme uses all 12 chromatic tones in a neo-romantic lyrical style that is sustained throughout the work. The textures are transparent, but indeed the movement builds to a satisfying climax and tapers down to a quiet ending. The Toccata is great fun rhythmically, and poses a challenge to the organist with a nimble pedal technique. A contrasting lyrical theme provides a contrast of mood and color and the work ends with an unusual calm.
