Ludwig van Beethoven composed his five large piano concertos over a period of twenty years. His Fifth Concerto in E-flat major op. 73; first published in 1810/11; is here presented in a piano reduction for two pianos. This edition; in the quality one has come to expect from an Urtext; is based on the Beethoven Complete Edition and is designed for practical use. In order to do justice to Beethoven's intentions; the composer's characteristic notation has been retained in the solo part. The preface; by the Beethoven researcher Hans-Werner Küthen; offers valuable details on the source situation and on its historical context; describing the circumstances of the year of its composition (1809) during the Napoleonic occupation of Vienna.
