Overview

Seeking to provide a comprehensive resource, Irving (music, U. of Bristol, UK) divides the book into two, writing both on the larger critical and contextual issues of the piano concertos as a group and about each of the concertos individually. Issues considered include the 18th- century theory of movement forms, the theory of Heinrich Christoph Koch, the roots of Mozart's concertos in 18th-century concerto writing, listening strategies, and performance practices. In describing the concertos, Irving includes exhaustive discussion of sources, accounts of composition, and early performance history and reception. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
