20th Century Concerto Grosso Revival on Spotify

The concerto grosso (Italian for big concerto) is a form of baroque music in which the musical material is passed between a small group of soloists (the concertino) and full orchestra (the ripieno). This is in contrast to the concerto which features a single solo instrument with the melody line, accompanied by the orchestra. - Wikipedia

The neo-Classical movement of the early 20th century reintroduced the concerto grosso as part of a "Back to Bach" campaign. [...] This form of 20th century concerto grosso is viewed as a reaction against the flamboyant display of the typical Romantic era solo concerto and often makes much the same effect as it did in the Baroque: a balanced conversation between the two major textures rather than a contest between them. - AllMusic

This playlist is a collection of concerti grossi written in the 20th century and onwards: Gian Carlo Menotti's Triple Concerto a Tre; the Palladio suite from the 1966 album Diamond Music by Karl Jenkins; Béla Bartók's Divertimento for String Orchestra; Krzysztof Penderecki's Concerto Grosso No. 1, for three cellos and orchestra; Concerto in E-flat (Dumbarton Oaks) by Igor Stravinsky; Edward Elgar's Introduction and Allegro and concertos by Ernest Bloch, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Bohuslav MartinůAlfred Schnittke, Andrei Eshpai, Eino Tamberg, Ernst Krenek and more. I only selected one piece from every composer, except for Martinů. These are all remarkable works, so I did not include Peter Breiner's Beatles concerti grossi.

Get this collection in one Spotify playlist: 20th Century Concerto Grosso Revival (58 tracks, total time: 6 hours) Ctrl (CMD) + G to browse in album view. In case you missed it, a similar playlist from 2010: The Art of 20th Century Fugue.
