  Concerto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The concerto as a form arose in the Baroque period side by side with the concerto grosso which contrasted a small group of instruments with the rest of the orchestra.

 Concerto - LoveToKnow 1911
Indeed, so entirely does the actual concerto form, as Bach understands it, depend upon the opposition of masses of tone unequal in volume with a compensating inequality in power of commanding attention, that Bach is able to rewrite an instrumental movement as a chorus without the least incongruity of style.
This admirably illustrates Bach's grasp of the true idea of a concerto, namely, that whatever the relations may be between the forces in respect of volume or sound, the whole treatment of the form must depend upon the healthy relation of function between that force which commands more and that which commands less attention.
This concerto is, on the other hand, remarkable as being the last in which a blank space is left for a cadenza, Brahms having in his friend Joachim a kindred spirit worthy of such trust.

 Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Concerto
A concerto for piano and orchestra is called a piano concerto, a concerto for violin and orchestra is called a violin concerto, and so forth.
The solo concerto seems to be one of those forms that has an intrinsic genius, offering drama, excitement, the persuasiveness of the individual voice, the power of massed forces — whether in opposition to or in support of the individual voice — and the chance to exploit and exhibit great individual accomplishments.
The concerto repertoire for cello probably comes in third behind that of piano and violin for quantity and quality, but Mozart alone wrote four French horn concertos, two flute concertos, a concerto for violin and viola, one for flute and harp, and concertos for clarinet, oboe, and bassoon.

 Concerto Palatino   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Concerto Palatino delivers delicious sonic bliss where the flamboyant art of improvisation triumphs: lucky Venetians who were surrounded every day with the beauty of a music so learned and so brilliant.
For over two hundred years, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th, these instruments combined in towns, courts and churches to form a consort of rare and resonant beauty.
Following in the footsteps of these former virtuosi, their aim is to restore these instruments to an active and respected place in concert life, and to cultivate a love of their music among audiences and players alike.

The six Brandenburg Concertos of Bach derive less from this tradition than from the type of ripieno and solo concertos composed by Torelli and others at Bologna and by Vivaldi and others at Venice.
It was the three-movement solo concerto of the Vivaldi type, with the quick movements usually in ritornello form, that survived the Baroque period and developed into the Classical concerto represented at its finest and most sophisticated in the 23 piano concertos of Mozart.
But the traditional three-movement solo concerto inherited from the 19th century has proved remarkably resilient, and on the whole resistant to the programmatic elements that have often invaded the symphony.

 The Baroque Concerto
While concertos were being written for almost every imaginable instrument as soloist with orchestra, together with various combinations, the harpsichord remained the poor workhorse of baroque music, its purpose being to act as continuo providing a background harmonic base and a thump to keep the orchestra in time.
Interestingly, Bach's Concerto for 4 Harpsichords and Orchestra is an adaptation of a concerto for 4 violins and strings by Vivaldi.
Bach's concertos for harpsichord and orchestra were to be the models for the future piano concertos by Mozart Haydn and Beethoven, through the 'romantics' such as Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky.

 Concerto Koeln
Concerto Köln was founded in 1985 by graduates from several European music conservatories.
On the CD Mannheim: The Golden Age the Concerto Köln under the direction of Werner Ehrhardt have dedicated themselves to the lightweight and at the same time representative music at the court of Carl Theodor of the Palatinate (1724-1799).
Although the style at the court of Mannheim seems to us at times unsophisticated, awkward and wooden, especially compared to the works of Mozart, we should not forget that they were the avant garde of their era and that they laid down the foundation for future developments such as by Mozart.

 Concerto in D major for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 35
While this background is well known, the part played by a third violinist in bringing this immensely beloved concerto into being is hardly known at all--nor is his name itself, though it is actually to him that the work owes its very existence.
As it turned out, the Concerto was the only work of Tchaikovsky's to be introduced to the world by the illustrious Vienna Philharmonic; on the podium was one of the most respected conductors of his time, and the soloist was a violinist who believed in the new work without reservation.
The now forgotten Kotek, who never performed the concerto written for him, died of consumption in Switzerland before reaching the age of 30; his last months were brightened by a visit from Tchaikovsky.

 Violin Concerto, Op. 14
Although Barber had sketched a piano concerto as early as 1930, the present work was the first concerto for any instrument that he completed and offered to the public.
The Violin Concerto is frequently cited as a sort of turning point in Barber's output, a work whose first two movements reflect the ingratiating melodic-romantic style of his earlier compositions and whose finale represents the first intimations of a new and tightened approach-leaner and somewhat more austere.
