DANIEL GOTTLOB TÜRK (1750-1813): 6 Keyboard Sonatas Collection I, 6 Keyboard Sonatas, Collection II.
Catalogue Number: 10O029
Label: Grand Piano
Description: Apparently made to help younger pianists get ready to play Mozart, Haydn and C.P.E. Bach, these dozen sonatas date from 1776-7. Not only are they performed on a cornucopia of period keyboards conserved in the National Music Museum in South Dakota but their scores teem with dynamic, agogic and expressive markings (like C.P.E. himself) which give us a close-up look at contemporary piano performance style. 2 CDs. Michael Tsalka (spinet, harpsichord, c. 1820 Thÿm fortepiano, tangent piano, clavichord).
