- Michael Tsalka (Clavichord)
Notes & Reviews:
American Record Guide, March/April 2014
It is refreshing to hear Bach's masterpiece performed with two beautiful 18th Century style clavichords recently built by Sebastian Niebler. Israeli-born keyboardist Michael Tsalka chose not to alternate between the two instruments in a systematic way. The excellent quality of this recording beautifully captures the richness and sweetness of both instruments. It is exciting to hear how Bach's familiar keyboard works can take on new interpretive meaning when performed on the clavichord.
