Incorrect word on piano action menu. Should be concert instead of concerto?

★★★★★ Novice

The list of choices on the piano action menu includes play concerto, write a song, practice, etc.

 

The correct word should be play a concert. The reason being a concerto consists of both a soloist and an orchestra with the orchestra playing both tutti parts and with the solo performer, as well as altering with totally solo performances by the performer. A typical concerto would be Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C, or Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-minor.

 

In the Sims4, the pianist, in this case, only plays a bunch of pieces he/she has been working on, which seems to be Ragtime in my case. A performance of "Easy Winners' Rag by Scott Joplin is not playing a concerto; just a concert.

 

I'm not being picky, it's just the program is using the wrong terminology and should be corrected.

I do think it's on purpose and not an oversight but will ask a dev on twitter.
