Clavichord recordings you like.

Mandryka:
I am really enjoying the recording of Boehm's 6th suite played by Gustav Leonhardt on the clavichord, on this astonishingly good Sony CD. The sound is so intimate and the instrument so beautifully colourful. The music is great too.

He recorded the same music for harpsichord too -- IMO the clavichord is much more alluring.

I want to hear more clavichord music – so recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Bulldog:
Richard 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.

Antoine Marchand:
Jaroslav 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:

Goldberg 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.

All appear to be out of print, or at least unavailable in the US. 

I mentioned this one on another thread, it is also out of print, but hyperion sells it as a download.



Book I is on clavichord.   

Here's an interesting thing that I used to have on vinyl.

I 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.

JPC is another option, but sometimes they don't have stock, usually the price duplicate Arta and, additionally, shipping and handling costs are criminal, if you don't buy a big amount (flat rate).
