Concerto (it is Beethoven's Op. 58, in the key of G) several points of treatment that were new and striking when, a hundred and nineteen years ago, the work was produced.
First Movement. The first new thing is that, instead of beginning with the usual burst of Full Orchestra (a plan he had followed in his three earlier Concertos), Beethoven lets the Soloist announce the first main tuno. Besides this, there are several other leading tunes, the second main one being given to Violins (a minor key melody in ' arpeggio ' steps), and two or three others being brought in. The Second Movement provides another of the work's points of rarity and interest. It is very short, and consists of a lovely dialogue between Orchestra and Pianoforte.
Third Movement. This, the Composer directed, was to follow closely on the Slow Movement. It is a sprightly Rondo, clearly and cleanly built.
