No musical genre has had a more chequered critical history than the concerto and yet 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. A picture emerges of a genre in a continual state of change, re-inventing itself in the process of growth and development and regularly challenging its performers and listeners to broaden the horizons of their musical experience.

- Comprehensive coverage of the concerto - a genre rarely considered in its entirety - including examinations of compositional contexts and performance-related topics
- Broad appeal to scholars, students, performers and music lovers alike, in a volume dedicated to one of the most popular of musical genres
- Up-to-date scholarship presented in a user-friendly fashion, traversing the whole spectrum of work on the genre
