Notes and Editorial Reviews

"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" – Bayerischer Rundfunk

"...Türk emerges from this recording as a composer whose command of material is certainly on a par with much of Haydn’s solo keyboard sonata output... It is confidently played by Michael Tsalka on all five of the instruments included on these discs." -- John Irving, British Clavichord Society Review
