Abraham Veinus: The Concerto - From Its Origins To The Modern Era

Reference | Books about Music
Instrumentation Orchestra
Composer Abraham Veinus
Publisher Dover Publications
This authoritative survey constitutes the first thorough English-language exploration of the concerto as a musical form. The musical form's long and colorful history is explored in critical terms accessible to lay readers as well as specialists, forming a listener's guide, an important musicological study, and a fascinating reading experience.

Examining the social, economic, and personal factors that influenced the concerto's growth, author Abraham Veinus also summarizes the contributions of theorists, composers, and musicians and defines the genre's terms and the changing nature. He traces the early development of the concerto as well as that of the concerto grosso, the early solo concerto, classic forms, Beethoven's characteristic use of the form, the Romantic concerto, and the modern concerto. A pleasure to read and a valuable reference, this volume is an ideal companion for musicians, music students, and lovers of classical music.

Reprint of the 1963 revised edition published by Doubleday, Doran and Company, 1945, and Cassell and Company Limited, 1948.
