Quote from: Antoine Marchand on October 25, 2010, 10:29:39 AMJaroslav Tůma has some excellents recordings on clavichord (Arta Records). He has recorded, for instance, the Goldberg Variations (2-CD set, first disc on two clavichords, second one on harpsichord) and The Well-Tempered Clavier (4 CDs), called there The Well-Tempered Clavichord:http://www.youtube.com/v/v7IyetFoUkIGoldberg Variations Tůma plays on two clavichords: the first one is an instrument built in 2004 and based on an original of 1761 by David Tannenberg and chosen as the lower manual for the pair of clavichords. On it stood the second one: a small instrument that is a copy (2002) of a clavichord of 1787 built by Christian Gottlob Hubert of Ansbach.http://www.youtube.com/v/1oOyXgNL6HUThe Well-Tempered Clavichord Book 1. Clavichord built by Martin Kather from Hamburg in 1999, after the David Tannenberg manuscript from 1761.Some additional info HERE.

Quote from: Antoine Marchand on October 25, 2010, 11:29:26 AMI purchased my discs directly on Arta Records. They use a secure server, you can pay with American dollars and in my case the discs arrived without problem.
Quote from: Bulldog on October 25, 2010, 10:25:34 AMRichard Troeger has recorded 4 volumes of "Bach on Clavichord" for the Lyrichord Early Music label. My favorite is his Art of Fugue which also comes with the Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue and a couple of other works on a 2cd set.
Quote from: Scarpia on October 25, 2010, 11:55:12 AMListened to a few excepts on their web site, and they sound attractive. But I must say I am astonished by a company that ostensibly makes its living by selling recordings, but which doesn't have the wherewithal to distribute their product through normal channels or at least list them on amazon.
Quote from: Mandryka on October 25, 2010, 01:02:01 PMI'd quite like to hear some more Bach. I like Kirkpatrick, but his instrument is so slick. It must be thoroughly modernised.Leonhardt in the Boehm suite I love so much plays a more characterful instrument. Less beautiful that AK's, but you miss something.
Quote from: Bulldog on October 25, 2010, 01:18:16 PMI don't know. From what I read from time to time, even on this board, there are many companies that don't distribute through "normal channels". The reasons for such a marketing strategy are beyond me.
Quote from: Scarpia on October 25, 2010, 01:35:50 PMI suspect many are motivated by a desire to capture the entire purchase price, rather than share profits with a distributor or retailer. However, I don't appreciate that they apparently want to get this additional profit at the expense of my convenience. I'm not anxious to give my credit card information to a myriad of retailers and restrict myself to amazon and a few other internet stores that offer good values. In the end it's up to them, but I can't believe wider distribution wouldn't allow them to make more money by selling more units at a reduced margin.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on October 25, 2010, 01:34:41 PMWell, I don't go back to that older stuff. If you have an interest in the Classical Era clavichord works, I have a lot of disks by Haydn and CPE Bach and a few by Mozart that are commendable. Let me know if you are interested in that era. The clavichord lived on into the early 19th century and some composers (like Haydn for example) used them for most of their composition work.
Quote from: Bulldog on October 25, 2010, 02:04:26 PMOne of them is a Haydn/Cerasi disc on Metronome where she plays a fortepiano as well.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on September 30, 2015, 08:43:51 AMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Cl9j0-WPnsI have been following this guy on Youtube for a long time. He is outstanding, and the instrument is nicely recorded. He does a series on recording experiments, and after he posts, he does another vid a couple of days later to talk about the piece and the particular challenges or interesting points in playing/recording. He is a very nice guy too, and if you want to talk to him, he will answer your questions very freely.
