Audio sample


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. The present editions completes the existing gap between Turk the theorist and pedagogue and Turk the composer by presenting last two of a projected four volume series of his complete keyboard sonatas in critical editions prepared by Michael Tsalka and Angelica Minero Escobar.
