About this Piece

From its perpetual 16th-note motion in the right hand to its octave-leaping melody in the pedals, the Toccata from Charles Widor’s Symphony No. 5 in F minor remains one of the most recognizable organ works ever. As a textbook example of the French organ toccata, it serves well as an invigorating encore to most any organ recital.
