||"Toccata and Tango" was written in 1995 by David Hanson. It was commissioned by Internationally renowned percussionist Steve Houghton for his performance with the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra. It was also commissioned in recognition of the 40th anniversary season of the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra and in celebration of Margery Deutschís 10th season as Music Director of the MYSO Senior Symphony. This innovative work is scored for solo percussionist, percussion & strings. This is a very challenging work for all performers, but well worth the effort. It is recommended that Steve Houghton be engaged to perform the solo percussion spot.
