Concertino

 

(1) A composition for soloist with orchestral accompaniment intended for concert performance. It differs from the concerto by its smaller scale (either each of the movements of a cycle is brief or there is only one movement; a one-movement concertino is often called a Konzertstück) or by the use of an orchestra of small dimensions (a string ensemble, for instance).

(2) The group of solo (concertizing) instruments employed in a concerto grosso or symphony.
