Most of the 20th and 21st century music for harpsichord that I’ve performed is included in the lists above, as well as a few works that I haven’t performed in public yet. Not included are some ensemble music with an idiosyncratic instrumentation for a particular ensemble (Ensemble Ambrosius, for instance), some more arrangements, and regular harpsichord parts in orchestral works.
