The Cello Concerto: An Overview and Timeline by Patrick C Waller
These pages include a total of 786 composers of 1176 cello concertos, of which 58% have been recorded. Aims
The aims of this project, which was originally undertaken in the second half of 2020, are as follows:
1. To assist readers interested in the genre of the cello concerto in exploring the recorded repertoire and, for unrecorded works, in hearing those works for which non-commercial recordings exist on the internet.
2. Using information freely available on the internet in English, to identify as many cello concertos as possible and to establish whether or not each concerto has, to date, been commercially recorded.
3. To provide basic information about all the composers and the concertos identified in the form of a brief single entry for each composer with hyperlinks to sources of further information, giving preference to reviews of recordings on MusicWeb International.
4. To create timelines of all identified cello concertos, dividing them into those that have been recorded and those that are unrecorded to date.
Appendix: Other works for cello and orchestra
A further 85 composers who did not write a cello concerto but wrote significant other works for cello and orchestra, all of which can be heard, are included here.
