The Classical concerto c. Some of the excitement it could arouse in Classical musical life is recaptured in the Mozart family letters. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, oil on canvas by Barbara Krafft, The solo concerto was the main concert vehicle for composer-performers such as Mozart and for itinerant virtuosos like the Italian violinist Antonio Lolli, whose incessant crisscrossing of all Europe scarcely can be reconciled with the incredibly bad travel conditions that still prevailed.
A secondary place for the solo concerto has been in the realm of musical instruction. Thus, Mozart, who wrote his latest, finest, and most difficult concerti for his own concert appearances, earlier wrote easier ones to be used mainly in teaching. The strings remained the nucleus, though less often the whole, of the tutti in the solo concerto.
But now the more equivoice setting of the string quartet gradually superseded the polarity of the basso continuo and the melody or concertante parts.
Moreover, the tutti was no longer reinforced by the solo instrument in the tutti passages, as it had been in the concerto grossofor the solo became exclusively a solo part. Though optional instrumentation disappeared insofar as the choice of instruments for the old basso continuo was concerned, the free use of what instruments were available still applied to the wind parts of the usual concerto tutti throughout most of the 18th century.
On the other hand, the solo part became increasingly individualized in the solo concerto as a result of the further exploitation of spectacular playing techniques. Accordingly, the music of the solo part became highly idiomatic for the chosen instrument; that is, it was calculated to take most advantage of the characteristic sound and techniques particular to that instrument.
Solo violin parts in particular had already reached heights of virtuosity during the overlap between the Baroque and Classical eras.
Examples may be found in abundance in the solo violin concerti of Leclair and the Italians Pietro LocatelliVeracini, and Giuseppe Tartini. Role of the piano Yet, from the s and the peak of the Classical era, and despite a continuing if limited output of concerti for the cellofluteoboeclarinet, bassoon, and horn, it was no longer the violin or any of these instruments that ranked first among solo instruments of the concerto.
Rather it was the newly emerging pianowhich was rapidly superseding the harpsichord and clavichord. Mozart, who with the London-centred, Italian-born Muzio Clementi was one of the first great pianists, wrote not only some of the first but some of the greatest concerti the instrument has yet known.
Now, with the greater independence of the solo part and the greater self-sufficiency of a keyboard part, both the drama and the variety of the tutti—solo opposition could be increased considerably. As for the variety, either orchestra or soloist might perform alone, either might carry the theme while the other accompanied, or the two might share in the theme by doubling, by antiphony alternating with each other in playing phrases of the themeor by more rapid interchange and alternation.
Another tutti, this time short, leads into a modulatory key-changing bridge consisting of rapid piano scales that elaborate on harmonies given in simpler notes in the tutti. The piano now enters alone on a second theme, then decorates snatches of the theme as the orchestra restates it an octave higher.
So the work unfolds in a kaleidoscope of ingenious, fresh settings. Movement cycles and forms The standard cycle of three movements, fast—slow—fast, became even more standardized in the Classical era.
Furthermore, the outer movements are generally predictable, too, at least in their overall plans. But, of course, these masterworks are no stereotypes.
They find their variety and distinctions in the details and working out of the forms. Textbook discussions of the solo concerto say that the tutti plays the exposition first, all in the tonic key, after which the soloist joins to repeat it, this time more elaborately and with the contrasting theme in a nearly related key.
In part this was because of the extensive passagework that is inherent in the virtuosity and idiomatic treatment of the solo instrument. This passagework and the loose treatment of the musical form reach their extreme in a terminal cadenza of the first movement, more so than in the shorter cadenzas likely to be found at one or more focal points in the other movements.
Many later performers have found too little opportunity for technical display in other cadenzas that the masters previously had left for optional performance in some of their own concerti.

The dissatisfied performers often substituted more brilliant cadenzas in such cases. But the structural looseness of the cadenza becomes less tolerable when the virtuoso performer goes to later sources or composes new cadenzas that are anachronistic in their technical and harmonic style, out of proportion in length, and inadequately related to the musical themes of the movement.
Major contributions As with both the vocal and the instrumental concerto of the Baroque era, the starting point for the solo concerto in the Classical era lies in Italian music.
But this time more weight must be attached to the evolution of the concerto in Germany and Austria. In these countries, there lies the more significant development, that of the piano concerto, as cultivated by the chief Classical masters.Paul Edmund-Davies Flute Clinics Please join us and North Bridge as we present 3 free interactive flute clinics with Paul Edmund-Davies!
