Field: Piano Concerto No. 1 in E major, H. 27

jfField’s Concerto No. 1 in E major was composed in 1798 or 1799, when Field was still a teenager apprenticed to Muzio Clementi. The occasion of its premiere — February 7, 1799, at King’s Theatre in London (the concert was described as one to help support old and “decayed” English musicians!) — was a most happy one for Field, and he was immediately launched into the professional English music circuit. Not until 1815 or 1816, however, was the concerto published by Breitkopf and Härtel of Germany.
