The Piano Concerto No. It was written between and in Vienna, and was dedicated to Archduke RudolfBeethoven's patron and pupil. The first performance took place on 13 January at the Palace of Prince Joseph Lobkowitz in Vienna, with Archduke Rudolf as the soloist,  followed by a Fo Da Love Of Dis - Poor Righteous Teachers - The New World Order concert on 28 November at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig under conductor Johann Philipp Christian Schulz Boston Symphony Orchestra / Erich Leinsdorf - Emperor, the soloist being Friedrich Schneider.
The epithet of Emperor for this concerto was not Beethoven's own but was coined by Johann Baptist Cramerthe English publisher of the concerto. In the second movement, 2nd flute, 2nd clarinet, trumpets, and timpani are tacet. The concerto is divided into three movements :. The first movement begins with the solo piano unfurling a series of virtuosic pronouncements punctuated by emphatic loud chords from the full orchestra.
The vigorous, incessantly propulsive main theme follows, undergoing complex thematic transformation, with a secondary theme of tonic and dominant notes and chords. When the piano enters with the first theme, Still Not Home - Snakeskin - CantaTronic expository material is repeated with variations, virtuoso figurations, and modified harmonies.
Following the opening flourish, the movement follows Beethoven's three-theme sonata structure for a concerto. The orchestral exposition is a two-theme sonata exposition, but the I. Allegro - Beethoven* - Arthur Rubinstein exposition with the piano introduces a triumphant, virtuosic third theme that belongs Kalyanji Anandji* - Dharmatma to the solo instrument, a trademark of Beethoven's concertos.
The end of the second movement was written to build directly into the third. The solo piano introduces the main theme before the full orchestra affirms the soloist's statement. The rondo's B-section begins with piano scalesbefore the orchestra again responds.
The C-section is much longer, presenting the theme from the A-section in three different keys before the piano performs a passage of arpeggios. Rather than finishing with a strong entrance from the orchestra, however, the trill ending the cadenza dies away until the introductory theme reappears, played first by I.
Allegro - Beethoven* - Arthur Rubinstein piano and then the orchestra. In the last section, the theme undergoes variation before the concerto ends with a short cadenza and robust orchestral response.
