I'm trying to compare a Baroque Harpsichord Concerto with a Classical Piano Concerto. But I'm just wondering in what aspects that the Baroque Concertos influenced the Classical Piano Concerto. I am mainly focusing on Bach and Mozart. Is there an influence from Bach's music to Mozart's Piano Concerto? Thanks!
You could boil the difference down to one fundamental elements: baroque concertos were actually intended for multiple "soloists," so you could consider the keyboard music to be an orchestral part, of sorts. Classical concertos were more similar to what we think of today, which is an isolated soloist accompanied by instrumentalists.
