Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Best known for his influential Klavierschule, Daniel Gottleib Turk's inventive and widely expressive sonatas, 48 in number, grew from the expressive potential of the genre shown by North German composers like C.P.E. Bach. The five instruments played by Michael Tsalka in this recording reflect the diversity of those instruments available in Turk's day, played with the nuances from the composer's own dynamic markings.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
For this recording, he's selected five different historical keyboards: a Kirckman harpsichord, a Spath-Schmahl tangent piano, a Silbermann spinet, a Kraemer clavichord, and a Thym piano. They vary tremendously in their effectiveness. The spinet is extremely resonant. The only instruments that naturally fit this early-classical style. Tsalka gets full marks for his efforts to put a sheen on these historically important works.
