The Cello Concerto: An Overview and Timeline
 by Patrick Waller and Renate Dehmer

These pages currently include a total of 2198 composers of around 2900 cello concertos, 925 (32%) of which have been commercially recorded.
 
Aims
 
The aims of the 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, 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.

Can you help?

Latest Update (October 2022): A further 141 composers of cello concertos and 16 works for multiple cellos and orchestra have been added. Appendix 2 (Other works for cello and orchestra) has also been updated with 400 composers added. A further update in the Spring of 2023 is planned.

Authorship: The project was originally conceived and published by Patrick Waller in December 2020, at which point it contained 768 composers of cello concertos. He retains overall responsibility for editing the files and made the recommendations included in the timelines. Renate Dehmer from Germany agreed to join the project as a co-author in 2022. She has undertaken most of the searching that has roughly tripled the number of composers included and she also compiled Appendix 1 (Works for multiple solo cellos and orchestra/ensemble), and sub-edited all the entries.
