concert,

in music, public performance of a group of musical compositions. Originally the word referred simply to a group of musicians playing together; concerts by a solo performer are properly called recitals. The earliest recorded public concerts were organized by a London violinist, John Banister, in 1672. Many orchestral concerts were given in the 18th cent., and early in the 19th cent., which saw great development of concert life; public concerts of chamber music were often given. In the American colonies, the first concert on record took place in Boston in 1731.

Concert

 

a public performance by artists of a definite, pre-arranged program. Concerts may be musical (symphonic, chamber, piano, violin), literary (recitals), or variety (light vocal and instrumental music, humorous stories, skits, and circus acts). Several performers or just one (solo concert) may participate.

In the USSR concerts are organized by concert tour associations—for example, Goskontsert, Soiuzkontsert, Roskontsert, and Moskontsert—and by philharmonic societies on the republic and oblast levels; in capitalist countries this is done by private entrepreneurs (impresarios or managers).
