Toccata for Orchestra is a virtuoso showcase overture that encompasses dark sinister elements which undergo vast transformations. Its dark opening theme changes into a cheesy jazz melody, to a flatulent brass passage then to a violent climax. The ending is a loud juxtaposition of darkness and cheese similar to the tuning of a radio when it is receiving two frequencies at the same time. In the end the melody takes the focus with every instrument playing at full noise.
