    Default Anyone familiar with the Tangetenflügel (tangent piano)?

    An article in today's NY Times.

    The recording (C.P.E. Bach performed by Alexei Lubimov) is on Tidal, so I plan to check it out.

    Try also CPE Bach’s Kenner and Liebhaber sonatas played on a tangent piano by Miklos Spanyi, Vol 33 of his complete CPE Bach

    Interesting instrument, I've never heard it before. To my ears it sounds something between a harpsichord and piano. The sound it's more similar to the harpsichord, altough a bit less metallic, but with the dynamics of the piano.

    Actually, the sound (but not the dynamics) reminded me most of the clavichord.

    Spanyi has also recorded a number of the concertos on tangent piano. I love the sound of that instrument.

    Another thumbs up for the Spanyi series - both the solo and the concerto series.
