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.


   




Review By Christo Lelie,European Piano Teachers Association,

Voor de pianist die methodiekles heeft gehad of die zich in de uitvoeringspraktijk van de late achttiende eeuw verdiept zal de naam van Daniel Gottlob Türk (770-1813) gemeengoed zijn. Turks Klavierschule uit 1789 is immers een van de belangrijkste bronnen voor de uitvoeringspraktijk van klaviermuziek uit de periode tussen J.S. Bach en Mozart. Zo bekend als Turks Klavíerschule, zo onbekend is zijn compositorische oeuvre. Dat is onterecht, zo bewijst Michael Tsalka op twee recent uitgebrachte dubbel-CD’s met sonates van Turk.

Review By John Irving,British Clavichord Society,February 2013

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! © British Clavichord Society

Review By Klaus Meyer,Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Radio),October 2012

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. © 2012 Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Radio)
