Toccata in A

mm80132 November 28, 2007Tocatta in A Major by Paradies. Played by Matt Myers age 15.

I am reading (well, actually, listening) to a book called The Sweetness at the bottom of the Pie, by Alan C. Bradley, which is marvelously narrated in the voice of an 11-year-old British girl, by Jayne Entwhistle. Flavia, (said 11-year-old) mentioned her favorite musical piece, which was this Toccata in A by Pietro Domenico Paradisi. Well, as one thing leads to another, I had to see what was so great about it. Judge for yourself! Awesome!! (The book is pretty cool as well. I highly recommend both).
