Arnold Schoenberg's Piano Concerto, Op. 42 (1942) consists of one movement with four sections: Andante, Molto allegro, Adagio, and Giocoso. It features use of the twelve-tone technique and only one tone row, though he does at points take some liberties with the permutation of the row.
The Piano Concerto, Op. 38, by Samuel Barber was commissioned by the music publishing company G. Schirmer in honor of the hundredth anniversary of their founding. The work premiÃ¨red on 24 September 1962, in the opening festivities of Philharmonic Hall, now Avery Fisher Hall, the first hall built at Lincoln Center, with John Browning as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Erich Leinsdorf.

The Symphonic Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in b minor by Wilhelm FurtwÃ¤ngler was written between 1924 and 1937 and is among the longest of all piano concertos. It received its world premiere in Munich on October 1937, with Edwin Fischer as the piano soloist; FurtwÃ¤ngler conducted the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. In January 1939 there was a radio broadcast which has survived as the only documentation of the unpublished version of the concerto.
The Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in G minor, Op. 33 was the first of three concertos that AntonÃn DvoÅ™Ã¡k composed -- he wrote a piano concerto, a violin concerto and, lastly, a cello concerto -- and without a doubt it is his least known and least performed concerto. The verdict, whether just or not, has generally been that the piano concerto was more successful as a symphonic piece than one for the piano.
Aram Khachaturian wrote his Piano Concerto in 1936.http://www.moscowchamberorchestra.com/disc_other_chan8542.html. The piece is in three movements and is in D flat major.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000042DF/sr=1-1/qid=1156526973/ref=sr_1_1/002-6173523-3845610?ie=UTF8&s=music The first movement, Allegro ma non troppo e maestoso, makes extensive use of the three-note theme of F, B-double-flat, and A-flat. The second movement, Andante con anima, is one of the only major classical pieces to make use of a flexatone.
The Piano Concerto by Busoni, Opus 39, is one of the largest works written in this particular genre. The work is in five movements, the last of which also utilizes a male chorus, to a text by Oehlenschlaeger--a highly unusual feature for the piano concerto. The work was first performed in Berlin on the 10th of November 1904, to decidedly mixed reviews.
