RICHTER – LISZT Piano CONCERTO No.1 in E Flat

Excerpts from Robert Cummings’ article:  “The genesis of Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E flat major dates to 1830, when the composer sketched out the main theme in a notebook. It wasn’t until the 1840s, however, that Liszt actually commenced work on the concerto. As a neophyte in the art of orchestration — his output to that point consisted almost entirely of keyboard music — Liszt enlisted the assistance of his pupil Joachim Raff in providing the work an instrumental skin. Liszt completed the concerto in 1849 but made a number of revisions over the next several years. The final version of the work dates from 1856.”
