The first movement begins with a theme that is stunning in its simplicity and dramatic power.

The theme consists of two elements, the first of which is a falling, then rising F minor arpeggio, played in both hands, two octaves apart. The movement moves quickly through startling changes in tone and dynamics, and is characterized by an appassionnata use of themes. The main theme, in double octaves, is quiet and ominous. Just after four bars the main theme is repeated in G-flat major, creating a great contrast.


There is a short but important recurrent four note motif reminiscent of the main theme in Beethoven’s Symphony No 5.

In the recapitulation the fortissimo outbreak is triumphantly shifted to F-major.

The second theme begins as a free inversion of the main theme. As in Beethoven’s Waldstein-sonata the coda is unusually long, containing quasi-improvisational arpeggios which span most movemenf the early 19th-century piano’s range.
