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

These pages currently include a total of 2057 composers of 2755 cello concertos, 909 (33%) 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 (April 2022): Renate Dehmer from Germany has agreed to join the project as a co-author. When it was originally published in December 2020, the project contained 768 composers of cello concertos. Since then Renate has undertaken most of the searching that has roughly tripled the number of composers included. She also compiled Appendix 1 (Works for multiple solo cellos and orchestra/ensemble) and has sub-edited all the entries. Patrick Waller originally conceived the project and retains overall responsibility for editing the files. He also made the recommendations included in the timelines. At this update a further 309 composers have been added and Appendix 2 (Other works for cello and orchestra) has been expanded considerably. We have also included a new page requesting help from readers who are aware of information that might help to resolve uncertain or conflicting information about the existence or authorship of cello concertos. A further update is planned towards the end of 2022.
