Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 1

In this video

Written in 1830, when Chopin was 20 years old, this video includes the first of two published piano concertos. Given the title Piano Concerto No. 1, this concerto was actually written immediately after the premiere of what is now known as Piano Concerto No. 2.

Chopin initially appears here as the student who has learned his classics well, opening with a long orchestral introduction that presents the movement’s main thematic ideas. But the moment the piano enters with its reiteration of the opening theme we can hear the Chopin we know. The slow movement is, in the composer’s words: “of a romantic, calm, and melancholic character. It is intended to convey the impression one receives when the eye rests on a beloved landscape that calls up in one’s soul beautiful memories – for instance, on a fine, moonlit spring night.”

Composer: Frédéric Chopin
Artists: Paolo Giacometti (piano), Rotterdam Young Philharmonic & Arie van Beek
