Harpsichord Concerto

for Harpsichord and String Orchestra (4,4,4,2,1 or larger)

I am presently composing a concerto in three movements for harpsichord and string orchestra (4,4,4,2,1 or larger). The total length of the music will be approximately fifteen minutes. I hope to complete the work in the summer of 2018.

Inspired by such great predecessors as Manuel de Falla, Bohuslav Martinu, Frank Martin, Francis Poulenc, and Henryk Górecki, I want to continue in their tradition but speaking with my unique voice.

I am not writing the concerto for any one particular performer, but out of my own interest in the instrument. I have felt compelled by its intriguing sound and relative lack of modern literature.

If you are a harpsichord soloist interested in performing the concerto, please contact me to find out more.





Expected Completion: Summer 2018

Approximate duration: 15'00"

Difficulty level: Advanced
