No musical genre has had a more controversial critical history than the concerto, but has simultaneously retained as consistently prominent a place in the affections of the concert-going public. This volume is one of a very few to deal with the genre in its entirety. Setting the concerto in its musical and non-musical contexts, it examines the concertos that have made important contributions to musical culture, and reviews performance-related topics.

No musical genre has had a more chequered critical history than the concerto but simultaneously retained as consistently prominent a place in the affections of the concert-going public. This volume, one of very few to deal with the genre in its entirety, assumes a broad remit, setting the concerto in its musical and non-musical contexts, examining the concertos that have made important contributions to musical culture, and looking at performance-related topics.
