Piano Concerto

A piano concerto is a piece of music written for a piano, where the piano is accompanied by either a large body of instruments or a whole orchestra. See also harpsichord concerto; some of these works are occasionally played on piano. Joseph Haydn and Thomas Arne wrote concertos for fortepiano or harpsichord, at the period of time when they were in common usage (the late 18th century). Piano concertos were also somewhat common in the time of Bach and Handel.
