Appendix 1: Works for multiple solo cellos and orchestra/ensemble
(compiled by Renate Dehmer)

This page contains entries for 125 composers of 127 works for multiple cellos and orchestra/ensemble, many of which are concertos. Twenty-six (21%) of the works have been recorded. Forty-nine of these composers also wrote at least one concerto for single cello and orchestra - they have links in the name to their entry in the main alphabetical section. For composers listed here who did not write a single cello concerto, any other work(s) they wrote for cello and orchestra (see for example Janssen) are mentioned here rather than in Appendix 2.

Ninety-three of the works are for two cellos, fourteen for three cellos, ten for four cellos, two for five cellos, one for six cellos, four for eight cellos, two for twelve cellos and one for an unspecified number of cellos. They are listed within these categories below.
