The 1st harpsichord concerto is modern-classical (i.e. neo-classical, not really modern). It was originally input via MIDI in 1996 and notated but 13 years later, in 2009 (with some changes in the final movement). It consists of three movements, that are based on the same theme. The 1st movement is a solemn and moderately fast. The 2nd one is a very expressive slow movement, in which the soloist plays a more prominent role than in the 1st. The 3rd (and final) movement is fast, lively, stately and witty. In all movements the themes are developed, but none of them is really in sonata form. The performance is a digital performance using Sibelius 4 and Kontakt Gold. A score moving video is on my YouTube-channel.
