It's a pity not to have any score of the piece to follow while listening.

The piano and the harpsichord are an odd couple, of course. Whilst the playing techniques might have quite a few common points, the piano's increased range and ability to produce crescendos and diminuendos are starkly opposed to the harpsichord's monotonous nature. I don't think they are that effective when playing in unison, since the piano is very likely to drown the harpsichord, without allowing the latter to take any advantage of its particular timbre. The main musical ideas are there, but to make room for them to be identifiable, it's better to spice them up with contrasting sections and careful transitions (rather than the abrupt changes present in this work, especially in 7-2). Same goes for the harmonies, since you seem to rely a bit too much in chords, unisons, tremolos and over-accented, hammered notes, in which a listener might get lost without having a notion of the actual direction of the piece.

Hopefully you'll be able to listen and comment other people's pieces as well - we can learn a lot from each other.

Thanks for sharing!
