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 public concert on 28 November at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig under conductor Johann Philipp Christian Schulzthe 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, the 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 second exposition with the piano introduces a triumphant, virtuosic third theme that belongs solely to the solo instrument, a trademark Philharmonia Orchestra 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 the piano and then the orchestra. In the last section, the theme Adagio Un Poco Mosso - Ludwig van Beethoven - Claudio Arrau variation before the concerto ends with a short cadenza and robust orchestral response.
