This is the first recording of the Goldberg Variations on two clavichords standing side by side.  Acclaimed Early Music specialist Michael Tsalka regularly performs this work on a variety of keyboard instruments, but has chosen the clavichord for his first recording of Bach‘s masterwork. ”My interpretation is a bow to the spirit of improvisation, freedom and unbound imagination, which shines through the music of JS Bach and his contemporaries.” (Michael Tsalka)
