Hey everybody, I think I'm leaning towards playing the Beethoven First Concerto!

Any advice on this piece is GREATLY accepted, regarding all aspects of the piece.

Thanks in advance,

If you can play tchaikovsky's concerto then the easiest Beethoven concerto should be no problem at all. ;\)

It's not bad. You need clean scales and the ability to voice chords well.

And ditto to above, if you've played the Tchaikovsky concerto, then Beethoven 1 will be a walk in the park.

Actually if you re-read that post I said that I had struggled through the first movement. SOrry if I didn't make myself clear on that.

Well, just pull it out and read through it a bit. As for advice, it's pretty straightforward - listen well, play cleanly, pedal sparingly, the usual classical stuff...
