Building on theories of the relationship between modernity and musical structure in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, how can analyses of the structure of Finnegans Wake illuminate the latent structural temporalities in the toccate of Frescobaldi and Kapsberger? This study explores the relationship between cyclical and linear structures in early seventeenth-century Italian toccata style. It utilises elements of modernism as a lens through which connections illustrated by ‘modernity’ can offer a retrospective reimagining of the toccata style and its contemporary reception; agitating current perceptions of temporality in toccata structure.
