And he seems to delight in displacing a typically muscular concerto theme with a sudden diversion into impressionistic harmonies (hear the opening of the Cello Concerto). But none of the three concertos is either simply an adaptation of Delius' orchestral style or a reversion to the virtuoso Romantic concerto. Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Orchestra.

Delius: Double Concerto; Violin Concerto; Cello Concerto. Instead Delius seems to be after the greatest possible number of ways of combining the solo instrument or instruments with the orchestra in subtle textures that periodically coalesce into moments of great lyrical beauty, such as the moment at the end of the Double Concerto where the violin and cello begin to sing in octaves. Violinist Tasmin Little and cellist Paul Watkins both execute fearsomely difficult solo lines, and Watkins even returns for the most part to the almost-unplayable original version of the Cello Concerto. The BBC Symphony Orchestra under Andrew Davis achieves the restrained.
A double concerto (Italian: Doppio concerto; German: Doppelkonzert) is a concerto featuring two performers-as opposed to the usual single performer, in the solo role. The two performers' instruments may be of the same type, as in Bach's Double Violin Concerto, or different, as in Brahms's Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra.
The Double Concerto for violin and cello came first in 1916; the Violin Concerto followed immediately, though it was not performed until 1919, and the Cello Concerto was completed in 1921. In performance, too, they all sound as if they were carved out of the same creative block, in which conventional concerto dialogues are replaced by less confrontational rhapsodising with soloists, and orchestra combining to unfold Delius's long-limbed melodies. None of the concertos has ever been particularly popular, even among Delius's admirers
