Chopin’s Piano Concertos first saw the light of day around 1829/1830 and thus represent the culmination and termination of his student years in Warsaw. Both concertos are early masterpieces with which Chopin celebrated triumphs on his first foreign concert tours, and to this day their popularity has remained unbroken. As to the sources, the situation for the e-minor concerto is simple, since hardly any autograph material has survived. The Henle Urtext of the solo part is thus based on the first edition of 1833 that the composer himself authorised for printing. The piano reduction of the orchestral parts is based on material that has its roots close to Chopin himself. The Henle edition thus makes possible an authentic study of this core work of piano concerto literature.
