The concerto had three movements, which were traditionally fast (vigorous and showed contrast between groups of instruments), slow (lyrical and intimate in a new key) then fast (lively and dancelike). The first and third movements were most commonly in ritornello form.
Solo concertos were first written for violin, trumpet or oboe by Italian composers Giuseppe Torelli and Tomaso Albinoni. Antonio Vivaldi is a composer of the Baroque period who is well-known for his solo concertos.
