Very few musicians are aware of the fact that Beethoven arranged his violin concerto also as a piano concerto. It is only recently that some pianists have discovered this truly rewarding work. Clementi; the London composer and publisher; had heard about the première of the violin concerto and probably sensed its potential. He asked Beethoven for a piano version; which was actually also published in 1808; at the same time as the original. Several important cadenzas had been especially composed for it; the one for the first movement is accompanied by the timpani - a unique and original touch! Our edition (piano reduction and study score) contains the text from the recently published volume in the Complete Edition of Beethoven's Works.
