I have very limited knowledge, but I have started to listen to more and more non-piano music, so here we go:

Prokofiev - Violin concerto no. 1
Sibelius - Violin concerto
Tchaikovsky - Violin concerto
Brahms - Violin concerto
Mendelssohn - Violin concerto
Beethoven - Violin concerto
Mozart - Violin concerto no. 5
Berg - Violin concerto

Haydn - Trumpet concerto
Hummel - Trumpet concerto

All of these are great.

Not in the hundreds, but I have heard a fair few dozen others. I mean I love him, but he is a little bit like Henselt in that he kept writing the same thing over and over again - I think the Seasons is where he nailed it, and if you like those you’ll like just about everything else too since the remaining concertos are mostly variations of the same artistic ideas. But what a world he has given us - one of the many favourites outside the Seasons is this, which should be familiar to anyone who has looked in to Bach’s organ works: YouTube

Seems dominated by the Violin and Cello concerti. Aside from some obvious ones (Mozart Clarinet Concerto, Horn Concertos, etc.) here are some other favorites:

Poulenc - Organ Concerto
Jongen - Organ Symphonie Concertante
Bartok - Viola Concerto
Kraft - Timpani Concerto
Nielsen - Flute Concerto
Vaughan Williams - Tuba Concerto

and these

Bartok - Concerto for Orchestra (had to sneak that one in)
Bach - Brandenburg Concertos :slight_smile:

Do Concertos for the 176 count?

Check out Sibelius’ original edition of the VC with Kavakos. It restores a lot of good material that Sibelius cut in his effort to make it tighter. I now prefer the original to the revised (same with Rach PC 4).
