"MAESTOSO"
BRAHMS AND HIS FIRST PIANO CONCERTO



During the course of composition, the work passed through different forms. In 1854 it began as a sonata for two pianos. By July of that year it was being transformed into a four-movement symphony. By January 1855 Brahms had composed second and third movements, for piano. He ultimately decided to make the work a concerto for piano, his favored instrument, in 1855-56, still consulting friends about the orchestration. Brahms only retained the original material from the work's first movement; the remaining movements were discarded and two new ones were composed, a second movement adagio, calm and dreamlike, and a third healthy and exuberant rondo movement.
