Notes & Reviews:

These are world premiere recordings of British composer Thomas Haigh's concertos for harpsichord. Harbach has chosen to record these concertos as solo harpsichord without the accompanying violins and cello, which was fashionable and acceptable during the composer's lifetime.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Haigh's music is optimistic and lighthearted. He has a gentle sense of humor that shows itself in movements like the Allegro of Concerto No.3, where, in the opening, the usual eight-bar phrase is truncated into seven. Mozart uses the same device in his Musical Joke. His music also shows some traces of his British ancestry. The rondos of Concertos 2 and 6 sound like they could be English folk songs. Barbara Harbach plays with gracious enthusiasm.
