1 Additional Answer
A symphony is a complex musical composition for full orchestra, usually in four movements, where at least one is traditionally in sonata form. Concerto is a musical composition for a solo instrument or instruments that are accompanied by an orchestra, especially one that's conceived on a relatively large scale.
