AbstractThis Concerto for Harpsichord is scored for solo harpsichord and chamber ensemble consisting of flute, clarinet in b-flat, bassoon, two percussionists, two violins, viola, violoncello, and double bass. The piece is composed in a single movement, however is split into three sections typical of a classical concerto form: fast section, slow section, and a second fast section. The solo part was composed with a 56-note Flemish harpsichord in mind, however may be adapted freely to whatever harpsichord is at hand. The concerto has no programmatic elements and is not intended to tell any sort of story, it is a work of absolute music that is intended to display the sound of the harpsichord alongside a chamber orchestra.
