Here is a winning combination of old and new. This three-movement sonata contrasts the traditional sound of the harpsichord with tonality and syncopations common to popular music and jazz. There are guitar-like moments in the first and third movements, while the second alternates between the baroque and the modern. McLean brings all the character of the instrument to light.
