For harpsichord solo and string orchestra:
2 violins, viola, ‘cello, bass, solo harpsichord; c. 10:27.
This piece was written to be very easy for a high school orchestra with few rehearsals.
While written for harpsichord, the solo part could be played on a keyboard, piano or even organ.
The string parts are quite easy. However, the second movement is primarily a duet between solo violin and harpsichord. Often school orchestra directors would like a way to include a pianist. This is a great piece to highlight a student or guest adult pianist, organist, keyboard player, or harpsichordist.
