    Hi I’m wondering if any of you know of any concertos or sonatas with orchestration of the Koussevitzky.
    Thanks

    I am pretty sure the Carmen Fantasy by Proto has similar orchestration to the Kouss. Could be wrong but I am pretty sure it does.

    There are not that many with full orchestra, Im pretty sure that the concerto's by welsh composer Gareth Wood have full orchestra, as does the concerto by Peter Maxwell Davies. I believe at least one of the Rabbath concerto's are with full orchestra.

    Most concerto orchestrations tend to be for chamber orchestra (solo db, strings, wind, f.horns, tpt and sometimes percussion) due, in part, to the double bass' projection, and also due to the period they were written in. Bottesini's concerto's were written in the 1800's when lower brass and much of the percussion section were not invented. For full orchestra the concerto's tend to be 20th century.
