Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Daniel Gottlob Türk’s twelve leichte or easy sonatas are excellent steppingstones for young keyboardists preparing to play the works of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. By their careful markings and flawless construction, these works introduce the rhetorical and expressive laws governing the musical style of the era. Türk’s leichte sonatas are both aesthetically accomplished and important to our understanding of the Classical period’s pedagogical practices. Furthermore, the sonatas’ correlation to central stylistic and aesthetic concepts discussed in the composer’s own influential pedagogical treatise Klavierschule (1789), make their reincorporation into the standard repertoire desirable and perhaps even crucial." – Read more Michael Tsalka Read less
