9. Does it feature the harpsichord?

YES

Originally, it was composed for the harpsichord. The piece in my collection features a different instrument, though. I'll let you have it either way.

not a question, just clarification:
when you say it features the Harpsichord, you don't just mean a harpsichord plays in it (true for every baroque concerto), rather you mean it's a soloist/one of the soloists? right?

question:
is there more than one featured instrument?

When I ask "the" feature, I mean is it a concerto for harpsichord.

I know, just making sure Serenity also means that. also when ask "the" it could still mean it's a concerto grosso with more than one featured instruments, right?

10. Is there more than one featured instrument?
NO for the original composition, it was composed only for the Harpsichord.
On my album, the answer to your question would be YES but the other featured "instrument" is more than one instrument.

11. For 2 harpsichords? NO

Please wait a little. I'm going to go back and add a comment to the harpsichord question.

Is it one of the Italian Concertos (originally for solo harpsichord)?

Yes Big, it was originally composed for harpsichord alone. On the album I have it is for one featured instrument and orchestra; the featured instrument is not a harpsichord.

Shos, I am not sure if it is one of the Italian Concertos. It was written near the year that Bach wrote the Italian Concertos but according to Wikipedia, the Italian Concerto's three movements are Allegro, Andante and Presto. The second movement of my concerto is not Andante.

Also, the performing artist on the album famously detested the Italian Concerto.

shos, I didn'tknow of more than one Italian concerto, unless you include the concerti based on Italian violin concerti (mostly Vivaldi).
Serenity, I know Glenn Gould hated the Italain Concerto, but I thought you said you had the one instument plus orchestra version? my head is spinning!!!

My album has Glenn Gould, so you should know what instrument he plays in my album. The orchestra conductor is Leonard Bernstein.

Ho Hum! My bedtime is at 12:34. I need my full 5 hours of beauty sleep you know. If I didn't have to go to work tomorrow I'd spend my whole night on the Beethoven Bulletin Board (sad but true).

Is it the F minor concerto? YES

Why did you guess F minor as a first guess? Lucky or did you deduce something from the information given?
