I'm not aware of any. Perhaps some small Portuguese label with local
distribution has released some more extensive selection. Recordings
I am familiar are the following:
Harpsichord Sonatas--Uriol (Portugal Som)
Sonatas para Cravo--Brembeck (Musicaphon)--Eckehart Merzdorf after F. E.
Blanchet (1746); Eckehart Merzdorf after German models (c. 1700)
Sonate per Tastiera--Brauchli (Stradivarius)--clavichord by Eckehart Merzdorf
(1978) after Manuel Carmo (Porto, 1796)
Sonates pour Clavecin, 2 CD--Robert (BNL)--David Jacques Way & Marc Ducornet
after a school of Grimaldi; Jose Calisto (1780)
In all cases (even the Brauchli), I think the recording doesn't live up to the
All the best,
