Toccata (Troika)

for solo piano
solo piano
Troika is a Russian word meaning “set of three” or a “sled pulled by three horses.” Throughout the piece there are three rhythmic layers working at different speeds to create a sense of forward motion. Sometimes these layers create a sense of a headlong rush, at other points the music glides along gently. The pianist may find places in the score that evoke other aspects of a troika ride: the winter wind, snow flurries, sleigh bells, horses galloping in tandem, bumps in the path, stars, or perhaps even a moonrise.

Description

Troika is a Russian word meaning “set of three” or a “sled pulled by three horses.” In many places in the score there are three rhythmic layers working at different speeds to create a sense of forward motion. Sometimes these layers create a sense of a headlong rush, at other points the music glides along gently. The pianist may find places in the score that evoke other aspects of a troika ride: the winter wind, snow flurries, sleigh bells, horses galloping in tandem, bumps in the path, stars, or perhaps even a moonrise. The work is in three sections with a final coda that repeats material from the opening. Pedaling guidelines are included at various points in the piece. Performers may wish to nuance these in order to fit their individual interpretation. – Gregory Spears
