Definitions: Toccata: a virtuoso piece of music typically for a keyboard or plucked string instrument featuring fast-moving, lightly fingered or otherwise virtuosic passages or sections, generally emphasizing the dexterity of the performer's fingers. [from Italian toccare, "to touch"] Voice: the melody carried by a particular voice or instrument in polyphonic music. Polyphonic: having two or more independent but harmonically related melodic parts sounding together. An orchestra plays polyphonic music, for example. A flute by itself cannot play polyphonic music. [from Greek “poly” multiple and “phone” sound] Fugue a polyphonic composition based upon one, two, or more themes, which are enunciated by several voices or parts in turn, subjected to contrapuntal treatment, and gradually built up into a complex form having somewhat distinct divisions or stages of development and a marked climax at the end. [from Latin fugere, "to flee"] Comments: In a usual keyboard piece, the right hand plays one voice and the left hand plays another voice. Here, the right hand plays TWO “voices”, the left hand plays ANOTHER TWO “voices” and the foot keyboard play a FIFTH “voice”. This takes some coordination.
