This was, in fact, my very first composition, when a mere teenager! Initially it was for piano, and is very much based on baroque / classical pastiche. I have kept the original piano part as it was then, but after deciding to add string accompaniment many years later, felt that the change to harpsichord would be appropriate. It is cast as a short, three-movement concerto, but because of the slighter dimensions, I felt that ’concertino’ would be a more suitable title.

Of course, it is not supposed to mimic an authentic Baroque style, either in the harpsichord writing per se or in the melodic material, where clearly the second movement closely betrays its original piano source. It is, as said earlier, a piece of light-hearted pastiche, and an attempt to add some new life to a (now) very juvenile composition!
