What is typically considered a good piano concerto to start with?

I was thinking maybe something like:

Mozart Piano concerto no. 24 C minor

even

Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 2?

Check out this thread. It refers to kids specifically but I assume much of the recommendations can also apply in general.

My first was the Mozart A major K414. My teacher initially gave me Beethoven's 3rd, but after a month, I complained that it was too hard.
