The sections that follow are relatively short and are set off by frequent minim chords, with abrupt contrasts of textures and a variety of three-against-two rhythmic patterns, often linked by reinterpretations of cadences mm.


In Toccata V virtually all of the figuration is derived from or stresses the interval of a fourth, contracted into a chromatic third above the penultimate pedal. These two principles—grandiose rhetoric and the minimum of conciseness—reach out in oppposite directions, finally to meet in the Fiori musicali.
