Cellist Jan Vogler summarised that the sonata "is an aristocratic, temperamental piece, full of musical expression and imagination. Its form is perfect, and it shows Beethoven's great taste. The sonata has been recorded often, especially in sets of all cello sonatas by Beethoven, or all music by him for cello and piano which includes also several sets of variations.

None of these works were completed. Already on 10 January , Schumann first expressed the idea of writing a Piano Concerto in A minor.
In a letter to his future father-in-law, Friedrich Wieck , he wrote: "I think the piano concerto must be in C major or in A minor. In August and January Schumann revised the piece, but was unsuccessful. His wife Clara , an accomplished pianist, then urged him to expand it into a full piano concerto.
In he added the Intermezzo and Allegro vivace to complete the work. It remained the only piano concerto that Schumann finished. The premiere of the first movement Phantasie took place on 13 August at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig with Clara Schumann as the soloist. The complete three-movement version was premiered in Dresden on 4 December , again with Clara Schumann, and the dedicatee Ferdinand Hiller as the conductor. Less than a month later, on 1 January , the concerto was performed in Leipzig, conducted by Felix Mendelssohn.
After this concerto, Schumann wrote two other pieces for piano and orchestra: the Introduction and Allegro Appassionato in G major , Op. The concerto is scored for 2 flutes , 2 oboes , 2 clarinets , 2 bassoons , 2 horns , 2 trumpets , timpani , strings , and solo piano. With this instrumentation Schumann chose the usual orchestration in early Romantic music for this concerto.
There is no break between these last two movements attacca subito. The duration of the concerto is about 30 to 35 minutes, depending on the interpretation. The main movement of the concerto is marked Allegro affettuoso ; its origin lay in the one-movement fantasy written by Schumann in , at whose core is the musical development of the conflict between the boisterous Florestan and the dreamy Eusebius, two characters Schumann often used to express the duality of being.
The piece starts with an energetic strike by strings and timpani, followed by a fierce, descending attack by the piano. This exposition chord is followed by a descending, rhythmically incisive chord progression of the solo piano corresponding to the ideal of the boisterous Florestan.
Only then, the main, dreamlike theme of Eusebius is introduced by the oboe along with other wind instruments. After its introduction by the woodwinds, the theme is then given to the soloist. Schumann provides great variety with this theme. In the course of the first movement Schumann varies this theme in many ways.
He first offers it in the A minor key of the movement, then we hear it again in major, and we can also hear small snatches of the tune in a very slow, A-flat section. The orchestra and especially the clarinet is often used against the piano in this movement: while the solo instrument is dedicated to the main theme of the concerto, the strings begin to intone a Florestan-like, syncopated side thought bar 41 , which becomes more and more dominant, until a variation of the Eusebian main theme recurs quietly but urgently.
This is followed by a subsection labeled Animato. At its end Schumann introduces a second theme, which does not reach the significance of the main theme. Subsequently, the development of the main movement begins in the form of a dramatic lament bar
