Beethoven’s Piano Concerto in E Flat belongs to the greatest masterpieces of classical music. It was the last of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos and was composed in 1808-1809.
The key of E Flat chosen by Beethoven expresses the solemn and heroic character of the whole work.
Therefore it is not without reason that this concerto has become known as ‘The Emperor’. The splendid introductory cadences at the beginning of the concerto, prepare the listener for the titanic greatness of the work.
