 Michael Tsalka Soloist


Daniel Gottlob Türk is best known for his influential teaching manual Klavierschule (1789), a work which influenced a generation of aspiring keyboard players. In order to advance the technical and musical skills of students, in 1783 Türk published two collections of light or easy keyboard sonatas (Leichte Klaviersonaten). Listeners, performers, teachers, and musicologists will discover untapped riches in these expressive and historically important works, played on this recording on four contrasting historical keyboards.

"... Enthusiasts and students of Classical music should take note of Tsalka’s project..."

"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."
