Concerto - A 'Project Climax' Subcategory - 12 CDs


Concerto
A concerto is a multi-movement composition for one or more solo instruments and orchestra. The word "concerto" is derived from the Italian concertare, which means "to reach agreement." Concertos have been written for all the instruments on the orchestra, but the vast majority are written for violin, cello, or piano, as these three instruments all feature a wide, dynamic and expressive range.

Concertos first appeared in the 1680s. Early concertos emphasize the contrast between soloist and orchestra, tending to place the soloist and the full ensemble on roughly equal footing. Especially popular in the Baroque era was the concerto grosso, which featured several soloists. Around 1750 the concerto grosso declined in favor of the solo concerto, which tends to emphasize the soloist more than the orchestra. At this time the keyboard concerto rose in prominence, thanks to the development of the modern piano. In the nineteenth century audiences demanded extreme virtuosity from solo performers, and composers such as Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Brahms, and Tchaikovksky obliged by writing fireworks-filled concertos. Twentieth-century composers incorporated new idioms into their concertos and stretched even further the limits of the solo instruments.
