Bach's Toccatas involve a good deal of virtuosity - hearing them played so fluently and musically on the more intimate clavichord, makes for an enjoyable diversity, and Richard Troeger certainly phrases and articulates with character. The recording engineer, Garth Hobden, is also to be congratulated"
- Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music, 2000/1

Baroque Keyboard master Richard Troeger does it again with another premiere recording of Bach's keyboard works performed on clavichord!
Why on the clavichord? Because this supremely clear, expressive, and colorful instrument was fundamental to keyboard players in Bach's time. Now it can be heard again in repertory that has rarely if ever been played on it since the eighteenth century.

Tracks:
1. Toccata for keyboard in G major, BWV 916 - 7:53
2. Toccata for keyboard in D minor, BWV 913 - 12:38
3. Toccata for keyboard in E minor, BWV 914 - 7:00
4. Toccata for keyboard in D major, BWV 912 - 11:34
5. Toccata for keyboard in F sharp minor, BWV 910 - 10:54
6. Toccata for keyboard in G minor, BWV 915 - 9:05
7. Toccata for keyboard in C minor, BWV 911 - 10:26
