Dedication: for Cristiano Rizzotto
Toccata-Rondo (2014) was written for Brazilian organist Cristiano Rizzotto who premiered it on his summer 2014 South American recital tour. The work is a toccata in a traditional French romantic style, but with a contemporary American harmonic vocabulary. Two intervening rondo episodes alternate with the main toccata texture.
