Audio sample


A critical edition of the forty-eight keyboard sonatas of the North German composer, performer, theorist, and pedagogue, Daniel Gottlob Turk has long been overdue. Today, Turk remains best known for his extensive and extremely detailed musical treatise, "Klavierschule" (1789), one of the most important sources for keyboard performance practice of the late eighteenth century. He is also recognized among piano teachers as the composer of a collection of extremely useful keyboard miniatures, the "Kleine Handstucke fur angehende Klavierspieler", which systematically prepare beginning students for the many challenges of more advanced repertoire. The present editions begin to close the existing gap between Turk the theorist and pedagogue and Turk the composer by presenting two of a projected four volume series of his complete keyboard sonatas in critical editions prepared by Michael Tsalka and Angelica Minero Escobar.
