Toccatas BWV 910-916 by : Johann Sebastian Bach : Rudolf Steglich
Bach most likely composed his Toccatas in his early creative years; between 1707 and 1713; they can be seen as the products of Bach's own “Sturm und Drang” period; and were not planned as an interconnected work cycle; but as autonomous works written at different times. As was customary for this genre; the toccatas emphasize virtuoso and improvisatory elements; and; occasionally; the recitative aspect as well. What is indispensable is Bach's mastery of the polyphonic technique; the rich harmonies; and the inexhaustible wealth of his inventiveness.
