Mountain Toccata (2008) for piano was written for pianist Jeffrey Grossman. This musical material is largely inspired by the modality and sounds of Appalachian folk music, although the “tunes” are original. The score is marked “energetic, very rhythmic, always rough-hewn.” This spirit pervades the entire work.
