The Cambridge Companion to the ConcertoBook - 2005
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.
