This is free piano sheet music for Toccata, Massenet provided by allpianoscores.com
Toccata is the second track from Emerson, Lake & Palmer's 1973 album Brain Salad Surgery. It is an arrangement of the 4th Movement of Alberto Ginastera's Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 28 (1961). The song features heavy use of synthesizers. Both Keith Emerson's keyboard synthesizers and Carl Palmer's newly developed drum synthesizers were used prominently. Alberto Ginastera himself liked the band's rendition very much. A quote from him appears in the liner notes of Brain Salad Surgery saying "Keith Emerson has beautifully caught the mood of my piece".
