About Tchaikovsky's "Piano Concerto No. 1 - The First Movement":
"Piano Concerto No. 1" is one of the most famous piano concertos among all piano concertos that exist in the world. It was composed by a Russian composer, Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1840 - 1893) from the romantic era. And the 1st movement is the most popular and familiar one to many people among the three movements of "Piano Concerto No. 1." It is a very dynamic piece.
Tips for playing Level 4 "Piano Concerto No. 1 - The First Movement":
This particular arrangement is at Level 4 (intermediate). Players have to jump around quickly among different octaves with the left-hand to play chords. It is easy enough but still sounds dynamic. The damper (sustain) pedal markings are not specified at all. However, we recommend pedaling here and there throughout the piece. Only a few fingering numbers provided for helpful hints. "Piano Concerto No. 1 - The 1st Movement" was originally written in the key of B flat minor - D flat major by Tchaikovsky. But this arrangement is written in the key of A minor - C major which is just one-half step lower than the original. The key of A minor - C major is comfortable for the left-hand to jump around among different octaves quickly on all white keys for intermediate players.
