 Michael Tsalka Soloist


 Daniel Gottlob Türk is best known for his influential pedagogical treatise Klavierschule (1789). His 48 inventive and varied keyboard sonatas were influenced by Sonatas of other North German composers such as CPE Bach and JW Hässler. The five historical keyboards employed in this recording reflect the diversity of the instruments available in Türk’s day. The twelve sonatas encompassed in his first and second collections show how the composer’s sensitive, at times dramatic, oratorical style relates beautifully to the nuanced expressive capabilities of these instruments.

 

 "Tsalka ... displays considerable artistry in his approach to articulation and tonal shading. All in all, these two discs offer a feast of stunning original keyboards showed off to good effect in music of great distinctiveness, stylishly performed. Hearing Türk’s music communicating with such strength makes me re-read his Klavierschule with greater confidence that here we have a theorist actually worth his salt in the real world!"

TURK, D.G.: Easy Keyboard Sonatas, Collections 1 and 2 (1783) (Tsalka) GP629-30
 
"Tsalka’s releases of solo keyboard music by Türk are especially exciting to me ... this was a first opportunity to have heard the whole of his Easy Keyboard Sonatas of 1783. Not so easy, especially as to be heard in exemplary interpretations, flexible and with subtle nuances, by Michael Tsalka on four interesting and fully described historic instruments... do enjoy seeing him on line [R] playing a modern clavichord, con molto espressione, in part of Daniel Gottlob Türk’s Sonata in C.
P.S. Michael Tsalka’s first double-CD collection of Türk’s sonatas (not the “easy” ones) was and received later by special request, and is equally desirable, with authoritative essays ... Hearing each of these instruments for 10-15 minutes one after the other makes for a delightful listening experience with the ear constantly attentive to the remarkable range of keyboard sound in the times before Steinway practically took over in today’s concert halls."
 
Peter Grahame Woolf - Musical Pointers

"Michael Tsalka ... knows the oeuvre of the composer like no other, and performs the music congenially—sometimes playfully, then dreamily and pensively, and of course, with plenty of lively virtuosity." 
 
Klaus Meyer - Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Radio) - October 2012
