Sinfonia concertante is a musical form that originated in the classical music era, and is a mixture of the symphony and the concerto genres:

  • It is a concerto, in that it has one or more soloists (in the classical music era usually more than one).
  • It is a symphony in that it does not particularly put the soloist in the spotlight: the impression is rather symphonic as a whole, with some solistic interventions not outspokenly dominating the orchestra.
