Concerto No. 1

Piano Concerto No.1 in E minor, Op. 11(1830)

The concerto is a grand harvest of perfect piano writing. It has retained a special place in the hearts of concert pianists, though conductors have far less to do in it than in other concertos. The slow movement is an exquisite, luxuriant nocturne.
