Essays in Musical Analysis, Vol.3 Concertos, by Donald Francis Tovey
Publisher: Oxford University Press
First Edition 1936
Twelfth Impression 1972
Tovey’s Essays deal with more than 250 works, including most of the standard musical repertoire. Fore acuteness, common sense, clarity, and wit they are probably unequalled in the history of musical criticism.
Volume Three deals with fifty concertos, from Mozart to Walton, and also contains a superb general essay on the classical concerto.
