I'm going to complete the list of works sections bit by bit.--Roivas (talk) 16:41, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Sort of confused regarding where to put the reference number. Maybe it's not needed.--Roivas (talk) 16:44, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I have a book that has what may be, if not truly complete (but maybe it is), a very thorough works list, and added all the information in there except arrangements of other composers’ works. The book is cited. I included publishing dates because sometimes they are much later than composition date (and in at least one case make opus numbers non-chronological) but this is not conventional I don’t think, on Wikipedia, so feel free to remove them if it seems unhelpful/trivial. Some of these works have German titles that are not always listed in this book I think... since they are likely to be known by German names as well, if anyone knows what they are...
I’m hoping someone more qualified will write articles on some his most noteworthy works, they certainly are deserving topics.
I'm using the Dover book, which is probably more thorough. I haven't finished typing it all out. The grouping of the works is a little different. String quartets are in their own section...etc. We'll figure it out. At least we now have some sources that aren't from the Internet.--Roivas (talk) 18:49, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Awesome, Roivas. Personally I prefer it to be in more sections, and string quartets would make a logical/sizable one. It makes it more immediately readable as a list. I didn’t use the sections presented in the Diane Peacock Jezic book, which were more generalized (for example, chamber music, wind ensemble music, and solo instrumental non-keyboard music were one section, and there was a vocal section but it didn’t distinguish choral works from songs/other stuff). I don’t know if it’s considered wikipedia-appropriate, but it would be great if we could reference recordings whereever one or more is known. As far as I can tell so far, Toch is not very extensively recorded, and information on what is (was) available is scarce. The Jezic book does include a discography, but since it’s from 1989 I don’t know how helpful it will be. It seems doubtful that many of these ever made it to CD. --NikeForHindmost (talk) 07:02, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
