concerto grosso at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Principal orchestral form of the baroque era, characterized by contrast between a small group of soloists and a larger orchestra. The small group (concertino) usually consisted of two violins and continuo, the instruments of the older trio sonata, though wind instruments were also used. The larger group (ripieno) generally consisted of strings with continuo. A. Stradella wrote the first known concerto grosso c.1675. A. Corelli's set of 12 (c.1680-90), J. S. Bach's six Brandenburg Concertos (c.1720), and G. F. Handel's 12 Op. 6 concertos (c.1740) are the most celebrated examples. From 1750 the concerto grosso was eclipsed by the solo concerto.
