There are many types of classical music - symphonies, sonatas, nocturnes, cantatas, preludes, fugues... the list goes on and on. One type of classical music looked at in KS3 is the concerto and this quiz will test how well students know this particular style of music.
A concerto is usually a 3-movement piece of music. In the 17th century, concertos were 'sacred works for voices and orchestra' but then things changed. In the romantic era, the concerto largely narrowed to three genres: the violin concerto, the cello concerto and the piano concerto. Virtually no major composer wrote concerts for wind instruments.
Try this quiz and see how much you know about the concerto. As always take your time and read each question carefully before submitting your answers. And remember to read the helpful comments after each question. They can often shed light on anything you are not sure of. Good luck!
