The chapter examines the notation of early nineteenth-century concertos and its implication for performance. The possibility of performances of concertos as solos, duets, chamber and orchestral works is considered. Performance issues relating to Chopin's two concertos and other works for piano and 'orchestra' are considered in the light of contemporary trends.
