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

Musical composition for solo instrument and orchestra. The solo concerto grew out of the older concerto grosso. G. Torelli's violin concertos of 1698 are the first known solo concertos. A. Vivaldi, the first important concerto composer, wrote over 350 solo concertos, mostly for violin. J. S. Bach wrote the first keyboard concertos. From the Classical period on, most concertos have been written for piano, followed in popularity by the violin and then the cello. W. A. Mozart wrote 27 piano concertos; L. van Beethoven wrote five; F. Mendelssohn, F. Chopin, F. Liszt, and J. Brahms wrote two apiece. From the outset the concerto has been almost exclusively a three-movement form, with fast tempos in the outer movements and a slow central movement. It has generally been intended to display the soloist's virtuosity, particularly in the unaccompanied and often improvised cadenzas near the ends of the outer movements. 19th- and 20th-cent. concertos were usually conceived as a kind of dramatic struggle between soloist and orchestra.
