    Hmm... my favorite concertos. I won't get them in order of preference. Bach's Violin COncerto in E, Vivaldi's Violin COncerto in A minor, Lute COncerto in D, COncertos for 2 flutes, 2 trumpets, 2 mandolins, Piccolo Concerto, Bassoon Concerto in E minor. MOzart's Piano Concerto #21, Beethoven's 3rd and 5th Piano Concertos. Handel's Harp Concerto, and probably my favorite of them all is Handel's Concerti a due cori (Concertos for 2 horns)!!!

    The instruments Vivaldis uses are sometimes exotic, but he integrates them in his concerto style ingenious!! The Lute concert in D is really awesome. The Mozart concerto i am just working on :unsure: some passage are kinda tricky . I love this Händel harp concerto, too; there is so less harp concerto repertoire. You know the harp concerto by Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf or anotherone by Wagenseil? Also nice. This horn concertos i don't have in ear now, must have a look on it.

    I have heard part of the Dittersdorf concerto. It is not as nice as Handel, or Mozart's Flute and Harp Concerto (another favorite), but it is kind of nice. There are way too few Harp Concertos around! (I might have to write one sometime. )

    Yes, write one, the good thing if you compose is: You don't have any problems with repertoire .

    I love the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, Paganini Concerto No. 1, the Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3, and Butterfly Lovers Concerto.

    A thread on that is right here. http://www.talkclassical.com/forum/showthread.php?t=304 I think the subject changed to something else though.

    Lightbulb Concerto

    My favorite concertos... there are so many! I love Vivaldi bassoon concertos. His music brings out the bassoon's character like nothing else. The Weber clarinet concerto does the same for that instrument. But... the Elgar 'cello concerto is still my favorite, if only for sentimental reasons.

    Default J.S. Bach

    My favorite is J.S. Bach's Minuete 1 and 2. I performed 1 as a solo in my middle schools spring concert two weeks ago, and it was a big hit. I reccomend listening to Theme from Symphony # 5 if you want a haunting piece.
