Performance practices in the nineteenth-century concerto

Rowland, David (2005). Performance practices in the nineteenth-century concerto. In: Keefe, Simon ed. The Cambridge companion to the concerto. Cambridge Companions Series. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, pp. 227–246.



The chapter reviews the types of instruments for which concertos were written, the kinds of orchestras that performed them, and the way in which they were programmed. The possible modes of performance - as solos, duets, chamber works, or accompanied by full orchestra - are examined along with other performance issues such as ornamentation and embellishment.
